  • Equipment and Infrastructure 2015-07-04
    The Hardrock Project benefits from world-class infrastructure, services and available labour within several communities in the immediate area. The project site is located only 260 km from Thunder Bay, Ontario (population 108,000), a few kilometres south of Geraldton, Ontario (population 1,893) and at 32 kilometres west of Longlac (population 1,388) all within the Municipality of Greenstone, and the Long Lac #58/Ginoogaming (population 600) First Nation Reserves. It resides along the Trans-Canada Highway and is accessible year-round. The Trans-Canada natural gas pipeline passes close to the site. Finally, some infrastructure will need to be relocated to accommodate the project.
  • Mining 2015-07-04
    The Hardrock PEA assumes the processing of an average 10,000 tonnes per day of material during the first two (2) years of production, followed by an expansion to 18,000 tonnes per day in Year 3 for the remainder of the mine life (13 years), from a combination of direct process open pit material and stockpile reclaiming operations. The open pit mine and stockpiling reclaim plan is a 15-year plan that utilizes a stockpile strategy to maximize grade to the mill and mines to an ultimate depth of 460 metres below surface.
  • Processing 2015-07-04
    Major equipment for the initial process facility includes a gyratory crusher sized for 18,000 tpd, a 32' x 14' semi-autogenous ("SAG") mill and a 20' x 30.5' ball mill. Mill feed would be ground to a P80 of 75 µm before entering a gold leaching circuit. Major requirement related to the 3rd year expansion to 18,000 tonnes per day include additional crushing, ball milling, solid-liquid separation units and leach capacity. Metallurgical recoveries for gold over the life of the mine are expected to average 89.6%. No by-product credits are anticipated.
