Headframe rises at Macassa Mine in the Kirkland Lake Goldcamp

The 231 foot headframe and shaft sinking infrastructure is now in place at the Macassa Mine. It is all part of a $350 million expansion program which will extend the life of the gold mine for another 15 to 20 years. Eventually the shaft will be to a depth of 7,000 feet( nearly a mile and a half deep).  The gold values increase the deeper you go. When completed it is expected to help Macasssa reach production of 400,000 ounces of gold per year.

 Why this is of interest to Atacama Resources International is that our three gold properties are all just west of the Macassa Mine and along the same geological fault line.
