WLFN: Update on Barkerville Gold Mines’ Cariboo Gold Project

Press Release

On May 24th, 2022, at 5:30 PM, WLFN will be conducting a virtual engagement session with WLFN Members regarding the proposed Barkerville Gold Mines Cariboo Gold Project. This meeting is a follow-up to the meeting of April 28th, 2022, to allow for further discussion with WLFN Members.

Barkerville Gold Mines (BGM) operates the Bonanza Ledge Mine near Wells and the QR Mill approximately 58km southeast of Quesnel. The Cariboo Gold Project involves a proposal by BGM to develop a new underground mine site close to the Bonanza Ledge Mine and to complete upgrades to the existing processing facility at the QR Mill.

The Cariboo Gold Project is currently in the BC Environmental Assessment process, and BGM has been engaging with WLFN with respect to the Cariboo Gold Project for close to three years. BGM and WLFN have also been in discussions with respect to a Project Agreement. The Project Agreement would ensure WLFN has the opportunity to provide continuing input on the operation of the mine and that benefits flow to WLFN from the operation of the mine.

The meeting of the 24th will be an important forum to discuss the current status of the Cariboo Gold Project, the content of the proposed Project Agreement with WLFN, and to obtain feedback from WLFN Members on the community survey questions regarding your interest in topics related to the Cariboo Gold Project. The survey will be online with the link provided below. Your participation and feedback is greatly appreciated.
