Elk Gold Mining Project

Project Category: 
Merritt, BC

Objective: Recovery of Thin Gold Bearing Quartz Veins. 

Acting as the general contractor, we were responsible for maximizing the recovery of gold ore.  We designed a highwall controlled blasting system to increase the overall bench-face angle of the benches and developed systems to recover thin quartz veins.  This project involved pre-stripping, water management, rock / waste removal, ore recovery and rock waste dump reclamation.
