Located in one of the world’s most prolific gold districts, Red Lake is one of Goldcorp’s top producers, yielding 414,400 ounces in 2014. The High Grade Zone is the backbone of the Red Lake operation, with an average grade of more than two ounces of gold per tonne. Recent investments in infrastructure and development have positioned this renowned mine for many more years of long-term sustainable production.
Exploration in 2015 will continue to focus on the high-grade HG Young discovery. Rehabilitation of the 14-Level access in the Campbell Complex is expected to enable diamond drilling to take place from underground in the first quarter of 2015. Exploration will also continue in the High Grade Zone at depth and on further testing of high Grade Zone deep offsets. Drilling will accelerate in the deeper portions of the Cochenour deposit and from the haulage drift to test new exploration targets.
The focus this year will be on the seamless integration of Cochenour into the operations of Red Lake.
