"One of the most important mineral trends of northwestern British Columbia extends from near the town of Stewart north to the Treaty Glacier" - Nelson / Kyba, British Columbia Geological Survery, Ministry of energy and Mines 2014
The Dunwell Mine property lies within this mineral trend located between the Silbak Premier Mine (Ascot) and Red Mountain deposit (feasibility stage – Ascot - formally IDM).
The historic Dunwell mine produced 45,657 tonnes averaging 14.3 g/t gold equivalent. Ore remains in the mine and recent drilling has shown potential to develop more reserves of similar grade below the existing mine. Large scale potential exists as multiple ultra-high-grade showings occur along strike (fault) for 3km. The near by Premier mine is reopening and is one of the comapnies open to processing ore from other deposits such as the Dunwell Mine. The property boasts the second best logistics in the Golden Triangle with a highway and power running through it and is located only 8km from shipping port in Stewart, BC.
