October: Pumpkin Hollow Progress and Construction Update
As we move towards mid-October, we are making excellent progress with mine construction at Pumpkin Hollow and I wanted to share some of the details.
2850 shaft station
We successfully met our schedule for reaching the 2850 ft level and are now focused on completing the 2850 shaft station, which will be used to deliver supplies. Once that is complete we will resume sinking the east main shaft.
East/North Ventilation Shaft
We are ahead of schedule with development of the east-north ventilation shaft. In the photos below you can see that we are in the process of completing the sub collar and will soon commence pre-sink work for the shaft.
We are on schedule with work for the surface facilities and processing plant. Currently, our focus is completing the earth works for the high-grade and low-grade stock pile areas.
