Sa Dena Hes

General Information

The Sa Dena Hes mine, owned by a joint venture between Teck Metals Limited (25% ownership), Teck Resources Limited (25% ownership) and Pan Pacific Metal Mining Corp. (50% ownership, a wholly owned subsidiary of Korea Zinc), is a lead-zinc mine located 45 km north of Watson Lake.

The property covers approximately 5,600 hectares. Production began at the Sa Dena Hes mine in August 1991, but due to low zinc prices, ceased its operations in November 1992. During the 14 months the project was in operation, the mine produced approximately 607,500 tonnes of concentrate containing 374,400 tonnes of payable zinc and 290,200 tonnes lead.

The Sa Dena Hes Mine is currently in a state of Permanent Closure. The Quartz mining license was amended on July 24th, 2013 to remove the development and production clauses. The reclamation and closure activities at the mine have started in 2013 and completion of the work is schedule for 2015.

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