ONTARIO – Having given the green light to the Broken Hammer copper-PGM development just last month, Wallbridge Mining Company of Toronto has issued an update of construction activities at the site near Sudbury. The project includes an 800-t/d open pit mine with ore to be tolled at the Redstone mill in Timmins, ON.
Contractors are now fully mobilized at the mine site and building has begun. Wallbridge expects ore production to begin the first week of May, and that 20,000 to 25,000 tonnes will be stockpiled by the middle of June. Trucks will begin moving the ore to the mill as soon as spring road restrictions are lifted, perhaps by June 15.
The Broken Hammer deposit contains 259,500 indicated tonnes grading 0.88% Cu, 0.1% Ni, 2.32 g/t Pt, 2.1 g/t Pd, 0.77 g/t Au and 6.95 g/t Ag.
