1.0% GSR

The North Timmins project consists of more than 100 km2 within the Abitibi Greenstone belt in Ontario. A Pre-Feasibility Study was completed in 2015 on the Bradshaw gold deposit, the most advanced gold project within the extensive property. The study evaluated an underground mine accessible by decline from surface with the primary mining method being longitudinal longhole stoping with unconsolidated and cemented crushed backfill.

Gowest has stockpiled more than 28,000 tonnes of development material on surface as part of a bulk sample program and has entered into a toll-milling agreement with Northern Sun Mining Corp. to process gold ore from Bradshaw at the Redstone Mill in Timmins, Ontario. The mill will produce a gold concentrate that will be shipped to the Humon Smelter in China.

The Probable Reserve at Bradshaw is effective as of June 2015 and contains 277 kozs of gold in 1.8 Mt at a grade of 4.8 g/t (3.0 g/t cut-off). The Indicated Mineral Resource consists of 1.2 Mt at 6.2 g/t gold for 422 kozs of contained gold (3.0 g/t cut-off). Gowest is exploring near-mine targets within one km of Bradshaw in order to grow the reserves and resources.

In the greater North Timmins project area, a regional program is exploring for additional gold targets in the many prospective areas on the property.

Recent Activity

    September 2023

    Initial assay results from the first phase 5,000 m drill program at Bradshaw mine intersected gold mineralization. A total of 2,255 m of drilling has been completed by the end of August. The highest intercept was from hole GW23-321: 10.64 g/t Au over 2.6 m from 139 m, including 16.67 g/t Au over 1.5 m from 140 m.

    June 2023

    Since initiating operations in early April to restart Bradshaw, the mine site team has achieved two months of safe underground production. The drill team has been mobilized to site and long-hole stope drilling has begun at the East Zone. Work on the ventilation upgrade, which will support planned production increases in future, is progressing well.
