YUKON – Vancouver’s Golden Predator Mining is advancing its 3 Aces gold project near Watson Lake, notably with the installation of a clear span bridge across the Little Hyland River. The bridge is a key element of the infrastructure for the project because it provides cost effective, year round access to the site where several veins have been discovered.
The new bridge to the 3 Aces project will make access with large equipment possible.
The new bridge, installed earlier this month, will handle heavy equipment including reverse circulation drills, service trucks, and bulk sampling equipment. Previously only helicopter transportation was available to the 3 Aces project area at a cost of $2,500 per day.
“I am extremely pleased at the collective team approach across the Yukon agencies and our staff in the permit review and approval process, which has been completed ahead of schedule. Most important, this would not have been possible without the assistance of the Kaska Nation, represented by the Ross River Dena Council and Liard First Nation. We could not have made these timelines without their on-going support,” said Janet Lee-Sheriff, CEO.
Golden Predator also thanked the staff and leadership of the Yukon Department of Energy, Mines and Resource, the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board, and the Water Board.
Mineral resources have not yet been estimated for the three major veins at 3 Aces. However, one hole recently cut 30.3 metres of 4.3 g/t Au from a depth of not quite 50 metres, and another intersected 10.9 metres of 14.8 g/t from about half that depth.
