Endako Mine History
The Endako Mine is a primary, surface molybdenum mine located near Fraser Lake, 161 kilometres northwest of Prince George, British Columbia. The mine is operated as a joint venture with Thompson Creek holding a 75% interest and Sojitz Corporation, a Japanese company, holding a 25% interest.
The Endako Mine is a fully integrated facility that began operations in 1965. It includes a concentrator that processes ore through crushing, grinding, and flotation circuits into molybdenum disulfide concentrate, and a multiple-hearth roasting facility that converts the concentrate into technical grade molybdenum oxide.
The mine and concentrator were placed on care and maintenance in July 2015 due to ongoing weakness in the molybdenum price. We expect to re-evaluate the status of Endako Mine as market conditions warrant.
