The mine in the Nelson camp reportedly produced 65,236 ounces of gold and 27,686 ounces of silver between 1889 and 1956.

In a statement on Friday, Ximen said the final excavation at the portal was now underway.

"Preparation of the rock face and installation of steel and timber sets will be done prior to placement of the portal culvert. After the culvert is installed, the overburden will be backfilled around the portal culvert. After that has been completed the mine services (air and water lines) can be installed and connected to the underground workings," it added.

Ximen Mining owns 100% interest in three of its precious metal projects located in southern British Columbia. Its two gold projects are the Amelia mine and the Brett epithermal asset. Ximen also owns the Treasure Mountain silver project adjacent to the past-producing Huldra Silver mine.
