BRITISH COLUMBIA – Pretium Resources of Vancouver says it is ready to move its Brucejack gold project into the development stage following the receipt of the BC Mines Act permit and the environmental management permit. The property 65 km north of Stewart will be home of an underground mine, a 2,700-t/d flotation plant and doré refinery.
In the 2014 feasibility study, Pretium said the Valley of the Kings deposit contains 13.6 million proven and probable reserve tonnes grading 15.7 g/t Au or 6.9 million oz of gold. The Brucejack project development has a price tag of about US$750 million and is expected to produce 500,000 oz of gold annually.
