Carmacks Copper

Carmacks Copper

General Information

Carmacks Copper project, owned by Carmacks Mining Corp. (subsidiary of Copper North Mining Corp. ), is located 198 km north of Whitehorse. It is expected to be a low-cost producer of cathode copper which will employ solvent extraction and electro-winning techniques to recover oxide copper.

The Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board (YESAB) has completed an environmental and socio-economic assessment (2006-0050 ). The Yukon Government and Natural Resources Canada, as the two Decision Bodies, have issued their decision documents to ‘accept’ the recommendation of the YESAB Executive Committee to allow the project to proceed subject to mitigative terms and conditions.

The project was issued a Quartz Mining License on April 15, 2009. This license provides the authorization under the Quartz Mining Act for Carmacks Mining Corp. to proceed with terrestrial activities (development, production, reclamation and decommissioning) of the proposed mine.

Additional approvals for the major mine structures are subject to review by the Yukon government as detailed engineering designs are prepared and submitted by the company.

In November 2009, the company applied for a Water Use Licence. The Water Board’s ruling on the application can be found here .
