UPDATE on Sleeping giant mine
The Company is progressing on the start of Sleeping Giant Mine. Two key elements are:
First, a mineral resource update to include all the identified gold mineralization from the upper levels since the last resource update in 2019. The company gave the mandate to the independent consulting firm, Innov-Explo, based in Val-d'Or, Québec. The consultant is currently building the digital 3D geology model which will be the basis to update the resource.
Secondly, the Company will seek permits to build a sleep camp facility near the mine site in order to lodge, and attract employees from the entire region of Abitibi to build and operate the mine. In the past, employees were commute by bus from the nearest city 80 km away. This former business model would not work in this current labour market. Currently, there is a small lodging facility to accommodate a small workforce to advance the engineering and geology works.
The Company is working with all his stakeholders to advance this project and will provide update to the investors as we advance it.
