The Golden Sunlight mine is located in Jefferson County in southwestern Montana, 55 kilometers east of Butte and eight kilometers northeast of Whitehall. The property lies on the eastern flank of a fault-bounded mountain range known as Bull Mountain.
Golden Sunlight is mined by conventional open-pit methods. The ore treatment plant uses conventional carbon-in-pulp technology as well as Sand Tailing Retreatment (STR), designed to recover gold that would otherwise be lost in the process.
In the first nine months of 2013, Golden Sunlight produced 72,000 ounces of gold at all-in sustaining costs of $900 per ounce1. Proven and probable mineral reserves as at December 31, 2012, were 318,000 ounces of gold2.
