HISTORICAL INFORMATION: The area is host to historical production of 8,600 million pounds of zinc and 853 million pounds of copper. The Matagami area is well serviced by established infrastructure including the town of Matagami, power, a permitted tailings facility, railway, airport and well-developed road and highway networks

David Patterson, Chairman of Donner Metals sat down with George to discuss the progress of mine development at Bracemac-McLeod. David goes on to say how proud he is of the development team for keeping the project on budget and on schedule and how having Xstrata as a partner in this project has ensured cost control and has reduced risk for donner. The Bracemac-McLeod Mine is scheduled to be ready for production in early 2013.
