Talisker Resources Ltd. has begun work on the construction of the Mustang mine portal at its Bralorne gold project.  The 4- x 4-m portal will be 54-m long, allowing for the future usage of 22-metric-ton (mt) haul trucks. Construction is expected to take approximately one month.

“The construction of the Mustang portal and decline gives Talisker much greater optionality for future increased production rates and multi-level stope access in our early mining phases,” said Terry Harbort, president and CEO, Talisker. “We are excited to be on track for production of our first stopes in the first half of 2024.”

Directly following the portal completion, Talisker will immediately begin construction of the Mustang decline to the same dimensions over a length of 400 m, allowing simultaneous access to planned stopes on the 3700, 3800 and 3900 levels. Decline construction is expected to be completed by mid-February, 2024.
