In development: A major new gold project with synergies to the Red Lake mine.
The Cochenour project is an important part of Goldcorp’s future plans in the Red Lake district, providing sustained, high-quality gold production. Exploration drilling continued in the third quarter of 2015 to assess the core area of the deposit as well as at the tram level, where there have been changes in the orientation of the veins from prior interpretations. Detailed interpretation and analysis is ongoing to support final mine planning and infrastructure. Processing of mill feed from the initial sill-development work was consistent with expectations. Work is ongoing to define the timing of initial stope production and ramp up of Cochenour feed for processing at Red Lake.
