Highbank’s Swamp Point North Aggregate Plant Is Now Commissioned
Vancouver, B.C. – April 14, 2015 – Highbank Resources Ltd. (the “Company”), TSX Venture: HBK. Victor Bryant, CEO/President comments,
“Another Major Milestone has been Reached. Our Director- Jim Place, P.Geo. was on site for the commissioning of the wash plant, cone crusher, jaw crusher and stacking conveyor systems. To view the first production video (click #1 below). Mr. Place took several samples of the first production, adhering to proper handling protocol procedures. The samples were delivered to a certified testing laboratory in Terrace, B.C. where standard construction aggregate tests will be conducted to ensure compliance with end user specifications. Mr. Place also delivered samples of the initial Swamp Point North (“SPN”) quarry run to sand and gravel consumers in Prince Rupert. The quality of our aggregates was well received. A potential new client will be visiting the operation in the next two weeks to ensure the compatibility of our load-out facility with their marine transport systems.”
“Currently the plant is being used to produce crushed gravel for onsite haulage road and stockpile site upgrades. Once these improvements are completed SPN will move into full plant production mode and begin preparing aggregate stockpiles for shipments.”
“Within a year of receiving our mine operating permit, we have seen the SPN –Portland Canal Quarry Project obtain funding, procure and transport to the site all necessary equipment, establish a year round camp, logged and cleared the site and expanded a road haulage network, construct a $multi- million marine load-out system, build a water recirculation pond for the aggregate washing plant, and commissioned all equipment for a fully functioning oceanside sand and gravel operation.”
“We would like to thank all the parties involved, from investors to construction personnel for their optimism and confidence throughout these difficult market times, and the construction period. Highbank intends to continue its positive and productive pace, as we become a major aggregate supplier on the northwest coast of British Columbia, Canada.”
