Fort Nelson LNG Plant possible solution for Yukon mine

It was found that the best alternative to an LNG supply chain is to build a facility in Fort Nelson. The LNG will then be trucked to the Yukon.

The mining project is currently in the process of initial engineering activities, and feasibility studies are expected to start in early 2012. The proposed mine will be located in west central Yukon, 380 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse.

It would be developed as a conventional truck-shovel, open pit mine, with an expected lifespan of 30 years. The poryphy deposit is made up of gold, copper and molybdenum and will produce copper-gold and moly concentrates and gold-silver doré.
