Northern Sun Mining Corp. currently owns two former producing nickel mines and a large prospective land package in the Shaw Dome area, a prospective nickel belt near Timmins, Ontario. Northern Sun has temporarily suspended nickel production due to current nickel prices and has placed its mine operations into care and maintenance. The Company will re-start production when the price of nickel recovers.
Northern Sun owns the Redstone Mill which has operated as the only nickel concentrator in this Region. The Mill was designed with two processing circuits which can operate in tandem at 1,500 tonnes per day (“tpd”), but with the flexibility to operate independently processing two difference ore types, each at 750 tpd. In March 2014, the Company entered into a definitive agreement with Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (“Wallbridge”) to provide for the custom milling of ore from Wallbridge’s Broken Hammer mine. The agreement is for approximately a one year term based on a minimum of 800 tonnes per day.
The Company trades on the TSXV under the symbol NSC.
