NEW BRUNSWICK – Northcliff Resources of Vancouver has filed the 43-101 technical report for the feasibility study of its Sisson tungsten-molybdenum project 60 km northwest of Fredericton. The company says the $579-million development is both technically and economically viable.
A mine at Scisson Brook has the potential to produce 8% of the world’s tungsten, and that percentage jumps to 40% of when Chinese production is discounted. An open pit and 30,000-t/d mill, and an ammonium paratungstate plant would produce roughly 557,000 tonnes of APT and 4.1 million lb of molybdenum annually for 27 years.
Details of the proposed operation are posted at SissonProject.ca.
