Brewery Creek

General Information

The Brewery Creek project, owned by Golden Predator Canada Corp., is located 55 km east of Dawson City, Yukon. The Brewery Creek mine was operated from 1997 to 2001 and was the largest lode gold mine ever constructed in the Yukon. The property consists of 801 claims with leases covering 16,160 hectares. It was a year-round heap leach operation with a seasonal open-pit mining capacity of 11,000 tonnes of ore per day.

Golden Predator Canada Corp. took over ownership of the Brewery Creek mine in 2012. The company is now responsible for completing the reclamation and closure activities for the mine. The majority of these activities are completed and reclamation efforts have been very successful to date .

A Type "A" Water Use Licence for this project has been issue by the Yukon Water Board .
