Coffee Project

Project Overview

Kaminak Gold Corp. engaged JDS to complete a PEA and then a NI 43-101 Feasibility Study in January 2016 on the Coffee Project. The FS demonstrated very attractive economics and Goldcorp subsequently purchased the Coffee Gold Project from Kaminak in May 2016 and engaged JDS to further support the project.

Project Scope

After the FS, JDS was engaged by Goldcorp to carry out Engineering Procurement and Construction Services on the Coffee Project with the opportunity to operate the mine for two years. The Project is currently scoped as a 200,000 ounce/year heap leach gold mine located south of Dawson City in the Yukon. JDS’s scope included managing the installation of a 214 km access road (including barge landings and barge transportation across two river crossings), a 425 person camp, an office / dry facility, an 18,000 tonne/day crushing plant (including primary and secondary crushing circuits), an ADR plant, an airstrip, a truck and maintenance shop, a water retention dam, diversion ditches and sedimentation ponds, a 60 Mt heap leach pad including event and raw water ponds, 3 – 4 ML steel storage tanks, a 450 MW power plant, commissioning and mine operations for a two year duration.

Goldcorp was purchased by Newmont prior to the start of major construction and the project was put on hold while Newmont prioritizes the Goldcorp assets. JDS continues to provide logistical support to Newmont for the project.
