Klondex Mines Ltd. (TSX:KDX,OTCQX:KLNDF) has completed excavation of the secondary egress at its Fire Creek gold project. The hoist is set and is in the process of being commissioned. The secondary egress, including the ventilation system, is expected to be operational by mid-November.
As quoted in the press release:
Once the hoist is commissioned and tested, Klondex will have a secondary egress at Fire Creek. This will satisfy requirements of MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) to begin its bulk sampling program at Fire Creek.
Klondex Mines President and CEO, Paul Huet, said:
The progress made at Fire Creek this past year has been impressive as the new management team continues to deliver on the project’s major milestones. The completion of the secondary escape-way represents the final hurdle to initiate our bulk sampling program.
