“Granite Creek is currently the most advanced project in our portfolio in terms of near term mine development. We recently rehabilitated the underground workings. It’s our goal to ramp up to full production in 2022. We recently announced that we’re having a ton of success and the new structure with very high grades and good widths,” according to i-80 Gold CEO Ewan Downie.
Downie added that the McCoy Cove is expected to be the second of three underground mines to be built over the next few years. McCoy Cove is not too far south of the granite Creek project and is host to resources close to 2 million ounces at grades of nearly 11 grams per tonne.
Downie says, “We are permitted to go underground. And we just announced that we are proceeding with the plan to go underground and complete all the work to move into full production. That program should start in the first quarter of 2022.”
In October 2021, i-80 Gold acquired the Ruby Hill Mine from Waterton Nevada Splitter, LLC and Waterton Nevada Splitter II, LLC. The property is viewed to complement Granite Creek in terms of production.
“Our goal here is to build a profitable mid tier gold producer that in our view will be one of the most respected producers in our sector and in the years to come. Our focus right now is to execute our plan to become a significant producer within the state of Nevada. Now it’s just up to our team to execute on our growth plan.”
