The Kudz Ze Kayah project was acquired by BMC Minerals in January 2015. Since then the BMC team has worked hard to complete detailed technical studies into all aspects of the mining project, including geology, metallurgy, environmental, geotechnical and engineering studies. In December 2016, BMC Minerals completed a Prefeasibility Study that demonstrated mining of the Kudz Ze Kayah ABM deposit would on balance be environmentally, socially and economically beneficial. Indeed, to date the majority of our major contracts for work have been awarded to northern BC and Yukon based companies with the very first contract awarded by us going to a local Kaska construction business.
We are committed to investing in, and developing Kudz Ze Kayah and any other projects in a professional and responsible manner to ensure that we deliver positive legacy outcomes for all stakeholders. Importantly, we also have the funding in place to carry out our activities with the appropriate level of professionalism and to deliver on our commitments. BMC Minerals believes the Kudz Ze Kayah Project can be implemented without lasting adverse effects on the local or regional environment or economies, and without undermining family or community well-being, or public health.
A key component of our activities has been, and will continue to be, engagement with the local community. Our relationship with the Ross River Dena, the broader Kaska and indeed Yukon communities will always be the backbone of our success. BMC is absolutely committed to leaving a positive legacy in communities within which we work and we endeavour to be the employer and business partner of choice in those communities.
BMC’s parent company is BMC (UK) Limited. It is based in the UK and is run by a team with a track record of mineral exploration, mine development and sustainable mine operation in Australia. If you would like to know more about the BMC parent company visit; http://bmcminerals.com
BMC (UK) Limited’s strategy is to invest and develop real, sustainable operating mines into production. We recognise that commodity values are cyclical in nature and therefore our mine development plans needs to be robust enough to be able to be financially viable at all stages of the cycle. We believe in the long term fundamentals of the commodities that make up the Kudz Ze Kayah suite – Copper, Zinc, Lead, Gold and Silver and we consider long term, sustainable operations can be created at the project.
At BMC Minerals we believe that the benefits of a working mine need to be shared, and with ownership comes responsibility. We aim to ensure any future project brings jobs, training, contributions and local supply relationships to communities in the Yukon, and we are committed to a process of open and constructive engagement.
The Kudz Ze Kayah (KZK) Project Proposal, is a copper, lead, zinc, gold and silver project located in the northern Pelly Mountains, 115km south of Ross River in South Central Yukon. The KZK Project Proposal is accessible by road and air.
The KZK Project Proposal fits key elements of BMC (UK) Limited’s corporate requirements.
