Alexco owns the high-grade Keno Hill Silver District in the Yukon. A PFS published in March 2019 anticipates production of 1.2 million tonnes of ore at an average of 805 grams per tonne silver, 2.98% lead and 4.13% zinc from four deposits over 8 years. Annual silver production is expected to be ~3.5 million ounces. The PFS anticipates $23 million in capital expenditures and a runway to production of 4-6 months. Alexco expects to receive a renewed Water Use Licence for the Bermingham deposit in Q4 2019. Keno Hill retains significant exploration and operational upside.
Alexco also owns and operates Alexco Environmental Group, which provides mine-related environmental services, remediation technologies and reclamation and mine closure services to government and industry clients in North America and elsewhere.
