YUKON — The Carmacks copper project owned by Vancouver's Western Copper has received its quartz mining licence from the Yukon Department of Energy, Mines and Resources. With the licence in hand, Western can begin construction on what will be an open pit, heap leach-solvent extraction copper producer.

 

The Carmacks property is 190 km north of Whitehorse on the traditional lands of the Little Salmon Carmacks First Nation and Selkirk First Nation. Construction will take 20 months to create a mine and plant with a cathode capacity of 23 million lb per year. However, Western is still reviewing its options and has not yet made a positive development decision. The May 2007 feasibility study estimated the capital costs at $152 million.
