Wolverine Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Wolverine Mine is located in south east Yukon, Canada, 282 km north east (as the crow flies) from the capital city Whitehorse, and 190 km by road north of Watson Lake and 180 km south of Ross River via the Robert Campbell Highway. The Wolverine property encompasses 107 square kilometres, and is accessible either via a 26 km access road west from the Robert Campbell Highway or a 1,340 metre long all-season gravel airstrip. Wolverine Mine is a high grade zinc-silver-copper-lead-gold underground mine, with on-site milling capabilities of 1,700 tonnes per day to produce zinc, copper and lead concentrates. The current mine life is 9.5 years based on a 5.2 Mt deposit and there is potential to expand the reserve through drilling. Yukon Zinc completed major site construction at Wolverine throughout 2009 and 2010. Mill commissioning commenced in 2010, and production in 2012 is increasing to design capacity. The concentrate from Wolverine will be trucked to the British Columbia port at Stewart.

  • 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.
