BRITISH COLUMBIA – Calgary-based West High Yield Resources (WHY) has received bulk sampling permits for two project areas, the Record Ridge magnesium and the Midnight gold properties. The company is authorized to take up to 10,000 tonnes from each of the sites west of Rossland.
In 2013 WHY completed a preliminary economic assessment of the Record Ridge project. It presumes conventional open pit mining, and a 3,000-t/d mill with a hydrometallurgical plant that would produce a calcined magnesia intermediate product and a fused magnesia product.
The company is now seeking financing for the bulk sampling and subsequent metallurgical tests. Please see WHYresources.com.
