It is the people that make mining. And of course a good ore body. Let us explore these two prerequisites by following the story & success of Ronald L. Handford and the Harper Creek deposit, both of British Columbia. This is a story in progress and we invite you to come along with us as we follow the technical and scientific and engineering activities leading, hopefully, to a new BC mine. Yellowhead Mining is the company via which this will be done.

I met Ronald one loud evening in a fancy Vancouver hotel. The occasion was the reception for clients of an international consulting company. A forlorn band played far too loudly at one side of the room as we huddled on the other side seeking a bit of quiet in which to converse. Our introduction was like all those in such settings: handshakes blurred by drinks. But somehow or other over the noise and the waiters pressing tiny pieces of the ever-present BC salmon into our hands, a vital character stood before me. At least that is my impression, and like all prospectuses I offer no guarantees.

He quickly told me the story of his deposit, of its potential, of his plans and referred me to some geological references on the deposit and on the area.

He sketched the history of the find: exploration in the 1960s by Noranda and US Steel, shelving of further work, and then renewed interest along with the 2000s upturn in mining and improvement in B.C.’s political risk with respect to mining investments. Intrigued I pleaded with him to send me information about the deposit and about his company and about his activities and allow me to write this piece and planned follow-ups so that I could record in real time the exploration, feasibility study, engineering, and hopefully development story of one new mine.

Here is Ronald’s potted resume: “Over 30 years of international experience in project development and finance. He has been an officer and director of several private and public companies since 1996. Prior to that he was a mining investment officer with the International Finance Corporation and mining industry banker with Barclays Bank.” His email is rhandford@yellowheadmining.com if you need to contact him for more. He is not alone, but I have not met the other members of the Yellowhead board and management team, so we defer that description until later.

Ronald sent me two papers on the geology of the deposit and surrounding area (see them at the links provided):

These papers contain as much information as any geologist or exploration manager could want. Of course Yellowhead is drilling more and defining more, but that information is not yet public. Stay tuned.
