The Springer facility was originally constructed and operated by General Electric Corp. in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s when the project was put on care and maintenance due to low tungsten prices. The mill was modernized by Golden Predator Corp. in 2007-2008. The facility could be production capable within 12 months of a capital commitment. Approximately $100 million dollars has cumulatively been invested by all companies in the construction and modernization of the mine and mill.

The Company also holds the Taylor silver-gold project in Nevada. The Taylor project hosts a current resource estimate(2) , is open to expansion, and is located in a district that has identified the potential for discovery of additional silver and gold deposits.
