ONTARIO - CANADIAN ARROW MINES of Sudbury, Ont., has purchased a headframe and hoisting equipment to advance underground exploration at its Kenbridge nickel project near Kenora. The deal includes a 31-metre pre-engineered headframe, 3-metre-diameter double-drum hoist with 400-hp electric motors plus conveyances. The equipment was purchased from MACKWOOD MINES SERVICES of Elliot Lake, Ont.
Canadian Arrow's planned 2008 program for Kenbridge includes dewatering of the existing 610-metre-deep shaft and underground diamond drilling. The property was explored in the mid-1950s and partially developed by Falconbridge. Blackstone Ventures conducted limited surface drilling in 2005 that returned high nickel and copper values. The latest technical report puts inferred resources at 3.2 million tonnes grading 0.73% Ni and 0.35% Cu.
