SSR Mining Returns to Drill Mac North Discovery
The drills are returning to the Mac zone discovery from March of this year. SSRM crews had an early start to the drill season and completed drilling four of the six drill targets before the Covid 19 suspension. Now that restrictions have been lifted, a 3,000m program is planned to further explore the Mac North area. The Fisher Project is located 125km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and is contiguous to the north, south and east with SSRM’s Seabee Gold Operation which includes the active Santoy mine. The exploration potential in and around the mine complex has consistently extended mine life characterized by high-grade underground structures. SSRM is mining 1-2 metre-wide veins at Santoy, at grades between 8 and 10 g/t gold. Seabee operations stand out for their profitability which stems from the plant performance with a projected 96.5% recovery and contributes to a low all-in sustaining cost of $682 per payable ounce of gold sold.
