About the Project
The Haile Gold Mine is located 3 miles northeast of the town of Kershaw in southern Lancaster County, South Carolina, which is part of the Carolina Slate Belt.
Haile Gold Mine, Inc. proposes to expand mining operations at their existing Haile Gold Mine located in Lancaster County in north-central South Carolina. The proposed project would include expansion of surface mining and associated mine pits and overburden storage facilities, initiation of underground mining at the Horseshoe deposit, and increased ore processing through optimization of the mill and related infrastructure including expansion of the water management system and existing tailings storage facility.
Additional project details can be found by reviewing the existing/authorized facilities figure, the proposed action modification figure and the proposed life-of-mine figure which can be found by clicking here.
Here is a brief video demonstrating general underground mining operations similar to techniques that could be used to mine the 'Horseshoe Deposit' at Haile Gold Mine.
