The Project consists of an open pit mine development and a 70,000 tonne per day concentrator facility with an average annual production of 108 million pounds of copper and 247 thousand ounces of gold production over a 20 year mine life. The project mine site, which includes the open pit, concentrator facility, support infrastructure, and associated tailings and waste rock areas, is approximately 125 km southwest of Williams Lake, British Columbia. The Project also includes an approximately 125 km long power transmission line corridor, an existing concentrate load-out facility at Macalister, BC, and existing access from Williams Lake with construction of 2.8 km of new mine road.
