Prairie Creek Data

Prairie Creek Information

  • Exploration 2015-09-25
    The new Mineral Resource estimate at Prairie Creek incorporates the results from the recently completed underground exploration drilling program last reported August 11, 2015. The underground drilling from the 870m decline was designed to test for new areas of mineralization near the north end of the existing mine workings and to further detail Inferred Resources, with the objective of converting part of the large Inferred Mineral Resource to the Indicated category for inclusion in mine economics. The drilling campaign, which commenced in late February 2015 and was completed in July 2015, comprised 5,484m of core drilling over 21 holes from three drill stations at the end of the decline from the 870m Level.
  • General 2015-05-10
    The Prairie Creek Mine is an advanced-staged zinc-lead-silver property located in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The Mine and related infrastructure are surrounded by the Nahanni National Park Reserve, which was expanded in 2009 to completely surround the site of the Prairie Creek Mine. The mine exploration and development program has been divided into stages. The first stage will be to re-open and access the underground by dewatering and re-installing electrical and ventilation services to the 650 metre-long decline tunnel which is located at the end of the 870m underground level. The 870m level portal is located at the mine site adjacent to the mill building. There are two other existing underground levels developed on the 930m level and 970m level. Canadian Zinc plans to carry out an exploration diamond drill program from underground drill stations located at the end of the decline tunnel, with the objective of upgrading part of the currently inferred resources to an indicated category. The drilling will be completed on four, 50-metre sections and is estimated to comprise about 6,000 metres of diamond drill coring over 21 holes. This exploration activity will be carried out under the scope of Land Use Permit MV2012C008 and Water Licence MV2001L2-003 issued from the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board. An underground drilling rig and other equipment will be mobilized into the site by Procon.
  • Exploration 2015-05-07
    In 2006 and 2007, the Company carried out major drilling and development programs at Prairie Creek including driving a new 600 metre underground decline which enabled a significant underground exploration and infill drilling program to occur. This $18.7 million investment over the two year drilling program confirmed a Measured & Indicated resource classification for a minimum 10 year mine life with the significant possibility of extending the life of the mine.
  • Equipment and Infrastructure 2015-05-07
    The Prairie Creek Mine has the majority of the required infrastructure in place which includes:1,000 tonne per day Mill, 5 kilometres of underground workings and related equipment, Heavy duty and light duty surface fleet, 3 exploration Diamond Drills and related drilling supplies, 1,000 metre Airstrip,180-kilometres Access Road, 50 kilometres of exploration roads, Fully equipped Administration & Warehouse buildings, 120-man accommodations, 6.8 million litre fuel Tank Farm, 450,000 cubic metre capacity engineered Water Storage Pond, 200-year storm-protective Dyke system along Prairie Creek Mine Site, Modern Satellite and Repeater Tower communication equipment

  • MinQuest explores Wolverine infrastructure opportunities 2015-10-06
    While ASX-listed MinQuest has been forced to abandon its plans to buy the Wolverine zinc mine, in Canada, the company on Tuesday said it would continue to “vigorously” explore opportunities to use the Wolverine infrastructure to process the Kona mineral resource from its own Fyre Lake copper project. Commercial production at Wolverine started in 2012, with full design capacity of 750 000 t/y achieved in the first quarter of 2013. The mine was, however, placed on care and maintenance in January, with owner Yukon Zinc facing financial difficulties.
