We inadvertently neglected to mention LIBERTY MINES, perhaps the most important player in the Timmins nickel camp. We were brought to task by Liberty’s president, Gary Nash, who wrote:
“It is unfortunate that I have to bring to your attention the fact that you have neglected to learn about the most prevalent developments in the Timmins nickel belt. Liberty Mines has a producing mine (Redstone), is about to begin pre-production at its second one (McWatters), is drilling off its third one, and has 12,000 hectares of mining claims immediately adjacent to the Shaw Dome, and not far south of it where, at least traditionally, it is thought not as prospective of finding commercial mines.
“Golden Chalice has made a big splash the last several weeks with two holes in one zone of mineralization. Excellent for the area and for them, but what you fail to realize is that Liberty owns all of the property immediately west and north of the discovery. In fact the McWatters mine is the closest know resource. We also own the Langmuir No.2 claim with the mine shaft, the adjacent claim to the southeast which contains most of the Main zone, and another claim north of Starfire’s South zone. We have five drills going in the area and there will be a flood of information coming over the next several months from the first twelve targets we have picked out.
“And we are in the commissioning stage of bringing a new 1,500-t/d mill on line which will be processing ore mid-July and shipping the nickel concentrate to China. In fact, we have shipped concentrate there through a custom mill in Cobalt, Ontario, from July 2006 to April 2007. We have stockpiled our ore from the Redstone mine since April ready to be processed in our mill.”
CMJ apologizes for the omission.
