The Montauban Mine Property was mined intermittently between 1910 and 1990. These mining operations resulted in a number of tailings piles which the Company intends to reprocess using modern milling techniques and concurrently remediate the site. The primary zone of interest is the Anacon Lead 1 tailings site underwent a historic resource estimation in 2011, and will be remediated during the process. Additionally, there are four other tailings sites which will be evaluated as modern mill feed. The underlying hard rock mineralization which was previously mined will undergo modern systematic exploration with the intent of building a resource to provide future mill feed once the residue sites have been fully reprocessed.
