Golden Predator is advancing the past-producing Brewery Creek Mine towards a timely resumption of mining activities, under its Quartz Mining and Water Licenses, in Canada’s Yukon. The Brewery Creek Mine project has established resources grading over 1.0 g/t Gold and a study currently underway by Kappes Cassiday to consider the feasibility of a restart reprocessing the existing heap leach material and incorporate new oxide material from the licensed resources and feasibility level mine planning at Tetra Tech. Drilling continues to expand the open-ended mineralized areas and untested targets across the 180 km2 brownfield property located 55 km by road from Dawson City, Yukon with an updated 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate nearing completion which will incorporate 2019 drilling designed to expand resources located between existing pits.
The Brewery Creek Mine is a licensed brownfields heap leach gold mine that was operated by Viceroy Minerals Corporation from 1996 to 2002. The Brewery Creek Mine was put into Temporary Closure in 2002 following a collapse of the gold price below $300 US per troy ounce. Golden Predator’s team commenced work on the project starting in 2009 and intends to resume mining and processing of licensed deposits when supported by an independent study that outlines technical and economic viability. The Company is also working with Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and Yukon Government to expand the licensed mining to include new discoveries and mining activities contemplated for an expansion of mining beyond the existing license. The 180 km2 property is located 55 km east of Dawson City and is accessible year-round by paved and improved gravel roads. Significant infrastructure remains in place, allowing for a timely restart schedule under existing licenses.
The Company has a Socio-Economic Accord with the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation. With a healthy treasury and strong management the Company has determined a timely path to gold production is the optimal means to create value for shareholders and continue exploration across the large project through internal revenues.
