BURGIN PB-ZN-AG RESOURCE
The Burgin mine is a historic underground base-metal mine located in TCM’s East Tintic property that was operated by Kennecott from 1965 to 1978, and produced a high-grade silver-lead-zinc ore concentrate. The mine is located 1 mile south of Highway 6 near the town of Eureka, and now acts as the main office and site location for TCM operational activities throughout the East Tintic District.
The Burgin mine has remained non-operational since 1978, although a significant extension to the resource, the Burgin Extension, has been drilled and identified at depth with a Preliminary Economic Assessment and NI43-101 compliant resource estimate completed in 2011. A number of significant base-metal targets have historically been drill tested immediately north of the Burgin mine, and TCM is currently evaluating these legacy resource opportunities as part of a larger Burgin-Ball Park base-metal footprint, and the potential for a larger future base-metal resource opportunity to develop within the property.
Currently the Burgin mine site acts as the operational and administrative base of TCM site activities, supporting the re-development of the Trixie mine and other regional exploration and geological activities.
