Getting bigger: Minto mine steps out in productive fashion / Gwen Preston.

Title: Getting bigger: Minto mine steps out in productive fashion / Gwen Preston.
Author(s): Preston, Gwen.
Date: 2014.
In: Canadian Mining Journal. (2014.), Vol. 135(1) (2014)
Abstract: Summarises geology of Minto copper-gold-silver mine, approx. 250 km north-west of Whitehorse, Yukon. Minto is part of north- to north-west-trending Carmacks copper belt, which hosts several intrusion-related copper-gold mineralised hydrothermal systems. Minto's resources comprise at least 13 million proven and probable reserve tonnes. Of these, 9.2 million tonnes are open-pit reserves carrying average grade of 1.86% copper, 0.52 gram gold and 4.48 grams silver. Remainder comprises underground reserve, with average grade of 1.86% copper, 0.76 gram gold and 6.77 grams silver.
