BRITISH COLUMBIA — Encore Renaissance Resources of Vancouver has announced plans to add a second underground shift at its Bonaparte gold mine near Kamloops. The decision was made following the discovery of a new vein announced in December 2009. The vein is said to contain sulphides similar to material mined in the pit area last fall.
The additional shift will facilitate the development of the new vein and advance the decline towards the known main veins. Underground exploration drilling is planned.
The company is currently extracting a 10,000-tonne bulk sample.
