Van Dyke Data

Van Dyke Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Van Dyke property was developed in the early 1900s when a shaft was sunk to a depth of 1,692 feet. The mine is reported to have produced 11.8 million pounds of copper between 1929 and 1945 from copper oxide mineralization with a reported grade of 5.0 % copper. Between 1968 and 1980 Occidental Minerals Corporation ("Occidental") drilled 70 exploration holes (sixty-two of which encountered measureable copper mineralization) on the Van Dyke property of which 46 of these were used to estimate a historical resource of 112,000,000 tons at a grade of 0.52% copper. Occidental uses a polygonal method to complete the historical resource estimate. Occidental also completed preliminary metallurgical testwork to determine if the copper mineralization in the Van Dyke deposit was amendable to in-situ leaching, with a pilot program of two 1,000 foot deep holes, 75 feet apart. The reports on the in-situ leaching metallurgical testwork indicated copper recoveries up to 80% using hydrofracturing to improve fluid circulation.
