The Golden Crown Mine
The Company has received permitting for a 10,000 meter drill program and is planning to start drilling on the Golden Crown shortly to expand upon the 2016 Resource Estimate
- Located 1 kilometre south of the historic Phoenix open pit
- 1,070 metre long exploration drift developed to access the multi-vein system
- 229 surface drill holes and 53 underground drill holes
- 2016 Resource Estimate
- 2017 Positive Preliminary Economic Assessment
The Golden Crown property is composed of a number of contiguous claims totalling approximately 1,017 hectares. The Golden Crown claims are located 4 kilometres east southeast of Greenwood, BC and 1 kilometre south of the historic Phoenix open pit. Golden Dawn owns 100% interest in the Golden Crown Property.
On the Golden Crown property, small scale historic underground gold-copper production took place in the early 1900’s. In 1985, a 1,070 metre long exploration drift was developed to access the multi-vein system. A total of 229 surface drill holes and 53 underground drill holes have been completed on this property in various programs that supports the current resource estimate presented in the table below.
Merrit Mining recommenced material extraction briefly in 2008 but shutdown operations in part due to the 2008 economic recession.
Golden Dawn plans to first increase the high grade gold resource before applying for permitting to extract material from the mine and process it a its Greenwood processing facility.
