Kensington Gold Mine, Lynn Canal

The Kensington underground gold mine and associated milling facilities are located on the east side of Lynn Canal about 45 miles from Juneau, Alaska and near Berners Bay. The mine is expected to produce about 125,000 ounces of annual production in the early years of operation. Over the 10-year life of the mine, Kensington is expected to produce more than 1 million total ounces of gold. Mining will be conducted underground via ramp access. Kensington will use an on-site flotation mill to produce a concentrate that will be shipped elsewhere for processing. There is no road to the mine, access is by either a combination of road vehicles, boat, helicopter, floatplane, or by boat direct from Juneau. Read more here and here.
