BRITISH COLUMBIA Construction and development work at its Tulsequah Chief base metal project is moving toward a Q4 2009 production date, says Vancouver-based REDCORP VENTURES of Vancouver. The project is located 100 km south of Atlin.
Permitting is proceeding. Authorization for construction of a causeway and bridge to connect the barge landing site on the river and the mine site has been received from Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Amendments to the mining permit are expected shortly, and work will begin soon thereafter on underground development, the waste storage site and building foundations.
The air cushion barge is nearing completion at an shipyard in Oregon. It should be launched and tested by year-end with delivery in Juneau, Alaska, anticipated during January 2009.
The final 24 units of the permanent camp are in transit from China, says Redcorp, and will arrive in Seattle later this month. The installation of the complete 170-unit camp at the mine site will occur this winter.
