From the Chairman: An Update on Moving the Mill

Preparations are well underway for moving the mill, which is being purchased for the Ixtaca Project from Nome to the port of Vera Cruz in Mexico.

We have contracted Dynamic Engineering Services Inc. to handle this big move; they are specialists in moving mine plants. A crew has been at the plant site near Nome planning and preparing for the move next year. A lot of containers will be needed to ship the more sensitive dismantled parts, such as control panels. They are not available in Nome and we want them available first thing in the spring of 2018. Being so far north, the port in Nome freezes over during the winter so it is better to get them in place before freeze up.

Some containers have already been shipped and the rest have been assembled in Vancouver and Seattle and are being trucked to a freight yard in Tacoma from where they are barged to Nome on the last barge of the season.

In organizing this, we have learned far more about containers than we ever thought of, some have lids that come off to drop stuff in and then reseal etc. there are many different sizes and so on.
