Due to COVID-19 and the resulting economic uncertainties faced by the mining industry, expenditures on the Galore Creek project have been reduced in 2020, deferring the start of the planned Prefeasibility Study. A core team and funding are in place to meet current permit, environment and community obligations. The 2020 field program has been reduced to a Care and Maintenance level of operation designed to manage critical safety, environmental and regulatory compliance activities and key components of the environmental baseline study scope of work.
Located in northwestern British Columbia, Galore Creek is one of the world’s largest undeveloped copper-gold-silver deposits. Galore Creek Mining Corporation, a joint venture between Mining Corporation and Teck Resources Limited, is committed to improving the project economics and advancing the asset towards development. Working closely with the Tahltan Nation and other local communities, we strive for excellence in all our activities, with continuous improvement and responsible practices that contribute to sustainable development.
Galore Creek Mining Corporation has developed an interactive 3-D virtual reality model of the Galore Creek project. Working with LlamaZOO and their MineLife VR technology the team integrated geospatial and mine planning data into a replica of the proposed mine development. Users can experience the property, camps, roads and deposits through a game-like interactive interface, visualizing the drill holes and mineralogy and seeing the entire proposed development and surrounding area.
