BREAKING NEWS: GOWEST GOLD Receives Mining Permit for Full Production

Oct 28, 2020

“We have just achieved two more critical milestones towards seeing the Bradshaw gold deposit as the newest gold mine in the Timmins camp," said Greg Romain, Gowest President. 

"We appreciate the patience and support of our many stakeholders and look forward to providing further detail as we move towards production.”

Gowest Gold Ltd. is pleased to provide a further update on its progress towards bringing the Company’s 100% owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit into production.

Mining Production Permit

Gowest has received official notice from the Ontario’s Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines (“ENDM”) that the Company’s Mine Production Closure Plan (“the Closure Plan”) has received final review and filing in accordance with the Ontario Mining Act (see Gowest release dated September 16, 2020.) The Closure Plan provides details for how the Bradshaw mine will be operated and closed, and how the site will eventually be reclaimed once mining activities are completed.

Gowest has now received all environmental permits required to bring the mine into commercial production.

Ore-Sorter Commissioned and First Processing Scheduled

Gowest’s ore-sorter has also been commissioned in preparation for sorting the mixed development ore currently stockpiled on surface. This material will be trucked to Northern Sun’s Redstone Mill, where processing is scheduled to begin on the week of November 9th.

As previously reported, approximately 28,000 tonnes of gold-bearing mixed development ore has been collected and stockpiled on-site from the Company’s ongoing Advanced Exploration Bulk Sample program. The Company also plans to mine approximately 15,000 tonnes of stope ore as part of the bulk sample.
