Joe Campbell has been involved with various gold and base metal mines across Canada for over 35 years, but it’s the land around Yellowknife that he’s focused on now.
As the president, CEO and director of TerraX Minerals, Campbell oversees the exploration company that operates two projects in Canada – one on the Burin Peninsula of Newfoundland and a much larger project in Yellowknife, known as the Yellowknife City Gold Project.
Campbell says the company’s biggest focus is the project in Yellowknife, because of the history of mining in the town and because of encouraging test results in recent years.
“Almost all of the big mine developments over the last several years have occurred in forming mining areas,” said Campbell. “Yellowknife has been ignored in that way, at least for the last 20 years.”
Roughly 50 people are now working in Yellowknife for the city gold project, with a second drill recently added to help increase drill tests. The exploration company has already invested millions of dollars, with the project half way through its projected timeline.
“We’ve put about $13 million into the project already,” said Campbell. “We’re well financed well into 2017 to do as much exploration as we can logistically carry out.”
