BRITISH COLUMBIA - Vancouver-based REDCORP VENTURES reports that the detailed engineering is approximately 50% complete at its Tulsequah Chief copper project 100 km south of Atlin. The permanent mine camp is being designed and built by MODULAR TRANSPORTABLE SOLUTIONS, and deliveries are expected to begin in March 2008.
Major equipment has also been procured for the project. A ball, rod and two regrind mills have been purchased and are to be refurbished by WESTPRO MACHINERY. A diesel generating plant will be acquired from CARMACKS COMMERCIAL CORP. SANDVIK MINING AND CONSTRUCTION will supply the underground mobile equipment fleet (three load-haul-dumpers, two 40-t trucks, two longhole and two jumbo drill rigs plus miscellaneous support equipment). ALLIED SHIPYARDS is refitting Redcorp's tugboat to double its horsepower for use with the air-cushion and conventional barge operations.
Redcorp hopes to complete the project in 2Q 2009, if permitting proceeds as expected.
