The Seabee gold mine shaft in northern Saskatchewan is going down another 200 m, to a depth of 600 m. The mine is owned by CLAUDE RESOURCES, which says it is spending $2 million on the project. The deepening is necessary to mine reserves between the 500-m and 800-m levels.
The Seabee mine has been a steady producer since 1991, turning out over 2.1 million oz. The mill was expanded in 2001 and treats about 800 tonnes/day. During 2002, 41,500 oz were recovered from the mine. Gold production this year is forecast to be 52,000 oz.
