The Proposed Project

Treasury Metals Inc. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and abandonment of an open-pit and underground gold mine and associated infrastructure. The proposed mine, located 20 kilometres east of the City of Dryden, Ontario, would have an ore production capacity of 5,424 tonnes per day and an ore input capacity of 3,240 tonnes per day with an anticipated mine and mill life of 12 years. Over the 12 years of operations, the average ore production and ore input capacity of the mine and mill would be 2,700 tonnes per day.
