The Proposed Project

IDM Mining Ltd. proposes to construct, operate and decommission an underground gold-silver mine located approximately 15 kilometres northeast of Stewart, British Columbia. As proposed, the Red Mountain Underground Gold Project would produce approximately 1000 tonnes of mineral ore per day or 365,000 tonnes per year, over an operational mine life of six years.
