About the Ishkoday Project
The Ishkoday Property has a historical production of 73,322 ounces of gold and 15,929 ounces of silver from 145,123 tons taken primarily from No. 3 Vein during 1936 to 1942, but also from the No. 10 Vein and the M Vein that were encountered at the lower depths of the mine in the later years of mine life. During mine life the mine development material was hand sorted at surface and stockpiled next to the mine shaft and mill locations. The higher grade quartz veins were milled with tailings placed in a natural depression next to the mill site. Both the low grade stockpile and tailings areas have been largely undisturbed since the mine closed during World War II due to manpower shortages.
