Geotechnical work completed on Canadian magnesium oxide mine


MGX Minerals has said that work to establish pit wall stability and assess static pressure of groundwater has been completed at its Driftwood Creek site in Vancouver, Canada.

In addition to providing more detail on the ground conditions, the geotechnical drilling programme provided materials for MGX’s assay testing to prove the quality of the resource.

Development of the site would create North America’s second magnesium oxide mine.

According to MGX, the results suggest there is considerable potential to expand the mine. The company has said that it plans to use the geotechnical results to evaluate locations for further targeted exploration drill holes and expects to carry out an additional 3,350m of exploration drilling this year.
