Huckleberry Mines Ltd. (“HML”) is owner/operator of the Huckleberry open pit copper mine, located 88 kilometres from Houston, British Columbia. The property encompasses 24,387 hectares, consisting of two mining leases covering 2,422 hectares, and 44 mineral claims encompassing approximately 21,965 hectares.
Huckleberry ceased mine operations in August 2016, and remains on care and maintenance pending a sustained improvement in the price of copper. The Company intends to review a number of alternate mine plans that would further enhance the mine’s operating performance, and potentially extend the mine life.
