that some of our better rock. this lead, zinc and silver deposit 180 kilometres southeast of Ross River isn going to be easy, which explains why Yukon Zinc Corporation has had to coat the tunnel with copious amount of mesh strengthened concrete.
A global recession may seem like a strange time to build a mine. But chief operating officer Ray Mah would disagree.
He hasn needed to beg banks for money since his company was gobbled by two big Chinese firms in July 2008.
The site is already connected by a 26 kilometre all weather road to the Robert Campbell Highway. The ore will be trucked to Stewart, BC, loaded on freighters and shipped to Asia.

At the height of construction, about 250 workers will be on site.
In all, they plan burrow more than two kilometres of tunnels.
