BRITISH COLUMBIA – Bralorne Gold Mines of Vancouver has received all air and effluent permits from the BC Ministry of Environment for mining and milling operations to begin at its property near Gold Bridge. Production will begin immediately at a nominal milling rate of 100 t/d.
Initial mill feed will come from a surface stockpile that averages 12.6 g/t Au. An additional broken ore inventory underground in the BK stope averages 15.9 g/t Au. Underground development is continuing so that additional resources can be mined.
Bralorne has outlined measured and indicted resources of approximately 62,300 tonnes at a grade of 11.4 g/t. The inferred resource is 192,400 tonnes at 11.4 g/t. Resources, broken ore and the surface stockpile are estimated to contain 1.1 million oz of gold.
