Bralorne Gold Mines has received all necessary permits from British Columbia's Ministry of Environment to begin gold milling at the Barlorne mine in the Canadian state.

With the permits, the firm will discharge the waste matter to the tailings impoundment from the gold mine and ore concentrator mill in British Columbia.

The firm expects the production to begin soon at a nominal milling rate of 100tpd.

The mill will initially be fed from the surface stockpile, which stands at 14,000t at an estimated grade of 0.368oz gold per ton for 5,150oz.

Once the surface stockpile has been used, the mill will be fed with an additional broken inventory of 11,200t at an estimated grade of 0.464oz gold per ton for 5,200oz from the underground in the BK stope.
