Last week, Gold Investing News took a trip to Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd.’s (TSXV:BGM) QR mill to see the first pour of a gold dore bar from gold mined from the Bonanza Ledge deposit. Watch the highlights of the visit below, as well as a brief interview with Frank Callaghan, director (and former president and CEO) of Barkerville.
“The very first pour from Bonanza Ledge, 14 years later,” said an enthusiastic Callaghan, “we discovered it back in 2000 on the flank of Barkerville Mountain, we did a bulk sample in 2004 that was financed by Eric Sprott, and then we went from 2004 to 2011 to get a permit to mine it. We got the permit in the beginning of 2011 … and now it’s running and that’s the first bar from Bonanza Ledge. It’s amazing!”
