Allnorth’s responsibilities for this project included:

  • Feasibility study
  • Cost estimates
  • Equipment load lists, quotes and selection
  • Electrical & Automation (E&A) engineering design
  • Mechanical engineering design
  • Site infrastructure development


About this mining project

The Harper Creek Project site is located in the Thompson-Nicola area of British Columbia approximately 150 km north-east of Kamloops. The data presented in the Allnorth portion of the Bankable Feasibility Study, together with the portions from other study participants, was adequate to support a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource and mineral resource estimate.
