OREGON – Bayhorse Silver of Vancouver says it has reached the first stope in its 80% owned Bayhorse silver mine in the central part of the state. The first 95 tonnes of mineralized material has been stockpiled outside the adit.
The mine was last operated in 1984. Bayhorse intends to remove the remaining broken ore from each of the old stopes as the mine is rehabilitated. The mineralized material will be sampled and subjected to a dense media and ore sorting analysis.
Photos of recent work and samples of stope mineralization can be viewed on the company's website at BayhorseSilver.com/bayhorse-silver-mine/underground-operations-image-gallery.
