Ximen Mining hires consultants Masse Environmental and Ecoscape Environmental to advance Kenville gold mine project

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCQB:XXMMF) has further boosted its technical team, hiring Masse Environmental Consultants and Ecoscape Environmental Consultants to advance its Kenville mine project in British Columbia.

Kenville was formerly known as the Granite-Poorman mine and lies 7 kilometres (km) west of the town of Nelson in the West Kootenay region. It generated 65,236 ounces of gold and 27,686 ounces of silver intermittently between 1889 and 1956.

The aim is to bring it back to life and establish a high-grade, 20-year, producing gold mine, while exploring the limits of the reserve.

Nelson-based Masse Environmental has been involved with the project for several years, having done initial baseline environmental studies and more recently supported Ximen’s application to renew the mine development permit.

It is now working with Ecoscape on initial hydrological studies to support the new decline permit application.

In late May this year, Ximen reported that it had hired engineering firm Micon International to develop a resource estimate for the new decline project at the asset.

The resource estimate will support plans for a 10,000 tonne bulk sample and will focus on areas of the property that were not included in historic mineral estimates.

“The continued and additional support from Masse and Ecoscape are a welcome addition to technical services being provided by mining consultants Micon International Ltd,” the firm said.
