Hudbay is Expanding Its Drill Program in Snow Lake.

At the Hudbay awards night Friday the Vice-President of the Manitoba Business Unit Rob Carter explained how they are moving forward in Snow Lake….


“Lalor Mine is advancing several key initiatives to increase production to 5300 tonnes per day.  Stall Mill recovery improvement project is well underway with all major pieces of equipment on sight and steel work being directed to support the installation of the state of the art Jameson cells as were installed at New Brit to increase metal recovery.  We’re seeing positive results from New Brit Mill and current throughput is trending above initial project design and operating costs are decreasing.  Surface exploration has commenced north of Lalor Mine with five drills turning.  These drills are targeting down plunge of their high grade copper and their gold zone testing for new ore bodies at depth of 1500 meters to 2000 meters below surface.”


Carter added they haven’t done this amount of surface exploration drilling at Lalor since the initial discovery more than ten years ago.
