The Tulsequah Chief Deposit is located at an elevation of approximately 110 metres above sea level. The Tulsequah Project covers a total area of approximately 30,547 hectares and is comprised of 54 mineral claims and Crown-granted claims.
The Tulsequah Project is at an advanced development stage and covers two previously producing mines, the Tulsequah Chief deposit and the Big Bull Deposit, which were last operated by a predecessor of Teck Resources Limited in the period from 1951 to 1957. The two mines were underground operations with conventional mining processing methods with well understood coarse-grained metallurgy.
