The Bralorne mine is located 150 air miles from Vancouver, BC. The Company is fully permitted and developing the significant gaps between the former and very successful Bralorne, Pioneer and King gold mines. From 1928 to 1971, these three operations produced 4.15 million ounces of gold from 7.9 million tons of ore (equaling a grade of 16.48 grams per tonne). The Bralorne, Pioneer and King mines represent the largest historic gold producers in the Canadian Cordillera. The Company remains well funded with no long-term or short-term debt.
