Excelsior Mining Corp confirmed the successful completion of the pipeline corridor at the Gunnison Copper Project in southern Arizona. Construction of a two-mile high-density polyethylene pipeline corridor connecting the Johnson Camp Mine processing facility to the production wellfield began in January and has now been successfully completed precisely as per Excelsior’s construction timeline. Excelsior remains on-schedule for first copper production in Q4 2019.

Stephen Twyerould CEO & President, said that “Another critical construction milestone has been successfully completed. We are now more than 90% finished in terms of the entire construction process, and we look forward to completing the remining elements over the next month."

Construction of the pipeline corridor included the installation of a bridge over an area of the property where elevation is required, and a 460-foot tunnel under the 1-10 highway. The pipeline corridor contains 18" and 20" diameter PLS and raffinate lines, as well as a freshwater line and a utility line.

Excelsior's North Star deposit contains a measured and indicated copper resource of 4.99 billion pounds. The North Star deposit is located immediately adjacent to JCM, which Excelsior purchased out of receivership in 2015 for USD 8.4 million.
