TIMMINS – A junior mining company based in Timmins is voicing excitement about the potential for two projects that could leave their mark on the city for a long time to come.
Ian Campbell, president and CEO of Temex Resources, said the two biggest things the company has on its side are a pair of properties located in the heart of a region that has seen over a century of continuous mining activity.
“In the junior mining space, everybody knows there’s some issues going on, and that’s hard, but in our view, Temex stands our for a variety of reasons,” Campbell said to a crowd at an Inside Business luncheon hosted by the Timmins Chamber of Commerce. “We stand out because we’re not a junior relying on just one project. We’ve got two projects.
“Our focus is on the Whitney Project, in the East End of Timmins. It’s got all those things you need going for a project these days. It’s got high-grade (gold), it’s got location, it’s got the infrastructure to put something into production. Of course, we’re a small management team, and I’m focused on the efficient allocation of cash.”
