Job Opportunity – Senior Planning Coordinator – Borden Gold

The Borden project is located near Chapleau, Ontario, approximately 160 kilometers west of Timmins. The project has the potential to further enhance the long-term economics of Porcupine. A pre-feasibility study is underway to determine the optimization of a combined Borden-Porcupine operation and is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2017. An Advanced Exploration permit has been submitted and is expected to be received by early 2017. The permit would allow for the construction of a ramp, the extraction of a 30,000 ton bulk sample and provide an underground platform for exploration drilling of a deposit that still remains open at depth and laterally.
