New Jersey Mill
Idaho Strategic built and is the majority-owner and operator of a fully-permitted, 360 tonne per day (tpd) flotation mill located in North Idaho’s Silver Valley, just two miles east of Kellogg, along Interstate 90.
The New Jersey Mill is currently being utilized for production from the Golden Chest Mine. The mill has demonstrated its value and potential as a regional processing center for the World-Class Coeur d’Alene Mining District.
Idaho Strategic is in the evaluation process to build a new mill (the “Murray Gold Belt Mill), paste backfill plant, and tailings facility on-site at the Golden Chest Mine. The Murray Gold Belt Mill will have initial capacity of 400 tpd and have the expansion potential up to 1,000 tpd. The Murray Gold Belt Mill is expected to serve the Golden Chest Mine and future deposits within the Murray Gold Belt.
