This includes hiring personnel, mobilizing equipment, ordering consumables and other preparations to ensure Bradshaw’s success as the next new gold mine in the Timmins camp.

The first underground work will focus on the development and production of the initial bulk sample area (East Zone), the development of ventilation infrastructure, as well as the development of a ramp to expand and access new ore zones. The Corporation is also working towards finalizing an agreement for milling Bradshaw’s ore and is working with several parties to determine the optimal approach for handling the gold concentrate.
