Exploration and Resource Development
This early success has provided proof of concept for TCM’s exploration and targeting efforts, in particular bringing historic and legacy datasets into 3D mining software for the first time and applying modern exploration and mining methods to drive significant shareholder wealth creation.
Ongoing mining and exploration development at Trixie, coupled with strategically located underground resource definition drilling will continue to define and grow the gold and silver resource base. Mine rehabilitation on the deeper 750 and 900 levels of the Trixie mine will continue together with drilling targeting the depth extensions of the newly identified bonanza and high grade structures identified to date.
Internal resource work leading to a future updated resource statement for the Trixie mine is currently underway.
Significant potential exists to expand the Trixie resource base, with the potential to identify additional high-grade structures in both the footwall and hanging wall of the historic mine development, as well as the along strike and depth extensions of the known mineralized shoots beneath the historic 1200 and 1350 levels of the mine.
