Ledcor is ramping-up operations as the mining contractor for Midway’s open-pit Pan Project at the northern end of the Pancake Mountain Range in western White Pine County, Nevada, approximately 22 miles southeast of Eureka, Nevada, and 50 miles west of Ely, Nevada.
The near-surface Pan gold deposit is ideally suited for open pit mining methods. The pit would have zero pre-strip and a low 1.8:1 life of mine strip ratio. Pan will be mined from two separate open pits, North and South, for a total mine life of nine years. Ore from both pits will be processed on a central leach pad.
Ledcor will provide all of the workforce and equipment necessary for drilling, blasting, loading, and hauling ore from two open pits to be processed on a central leach pad, including personnel staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once in full production, we will be moving approximately 1.8 million metric tons of ore and waste per month.
