VANCOUVER – Golden Predator Mining has chosen its technical team of contractors to advance the Brewery Creek gold project 55 km east of Dawson City, Yukon, toward reopening. Pre-construction work is expected to begin next year.
Robin Fraser of Canadian Northern Mining will begin by optimizing the Brewery Creek bulk sample processing plant. He and his company will continue to provide processing plant management, operating, maintenance and laboratory services through the bulk sampling of the 3 Aces gold project.
James Hesketh of Kalex LLC will act as contractor providing engineering, mining and metallurgical services. Hesketh is not only one of the few engineers with year-round commercial operating experience in the Yukon, he also headed the economic evaluation of Brewery Creek for a previous owner. He is a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines.
Brewery Creek operated from 1997 to 2001 as a heap leach. Detailed information is available at www.GoldenPredator.com.
