BRITISH COLUMBIA – Huldra Silver of Vancouver temporarily suspended milling at its operations in Merritt a few days before a planned maintenance period was to start. The cost saving procedures included the layoff of certain construction personnel.
The maintenance project consists of relining the ball mill to boost throughput to 300 t/h from 250 t/h. Delivery of a rubber liner is expected this week, and the mill is already being prepared to receive it. Other minor maintenance items will also be implemented to increase capacity and reduce costs.
Meanwhile, Huldra continues surface exploration at the Treasure Mountain silver-zinc-lead mine 28 km northeast of Hope. About 4,000 metres of HQ diamond drilling is planned at the MB and Jensen zones. Both zones are a distance from the current mine workings, but successful exploration will confirm that the property has potential to host additional mineralization.
