Hycroft Mining Corporation is a US-based gold and silver mining company, which operates its wholly owned Hycroft gold mine located near Winnemucca, Nevada. The Company’s focus is on developing the Hycroft mine from the current heap leach operation to a world class, large-scale heap leach and milling operation. The first stage of the expansion has been accomplished, which included:
construction of a 21,500 gallon per minute Merrill-Crowe plant allowing us to processing the increased solution flow from the pads (completed in 2013); and
construction of a gyratory crushing system to improve recovery of gold and silver from the leaching process.
The company has completed a feasibility study for a mill expansion, which would allow us to process the large sulfide resource. In late 2015, we constructed a mill demonstration plant on site to prove the flowsheet at a commercial run rate.
The Hycroft gold and silver mine is located in the Sulfur Mining district, 54 miles west of Winnemucca and straddles Humboldt and Pershing Counties, in Nevada. The mine is accessible year round via Nevada State Route 49 (Jungo Road). The mine encompasses approximately 72,000 acres, including both patented and unpatented claims.
