Eric Sauve, CEO of Grant Hartford Corporation was recently interviewed at the FSX conference in Phoenix Arizona.
Grant Hartford is a publicly-reporting gold company with claims located in the historical Garnet gold mining district located 50 miles east of Missoula, Montana. The Garnet district produced over 500,000 ounces of gold from the mid-1800s until 1941. The total land position under the Company’s control exceeds 4,000 acres within the Garnet mining district. In 2011, the Company initiated its “1941 Project,” so-named for historically-operating, high-grade gold mines located in the State of Montana that have not been in operation since 1941. During 2011, the Company acquired an additional 179 unpatented claims totaling 3,580 acres, representing 19 former high-grade, gold-producing properties within 200 miles of its cornerstone property at Garnet, Montana.
Grant Hartford completed its 2008, 2009 and 2010 drilling programs and used this data to finalize independent 43- 101 and Guide 7 Technical Reports. Reserve and resource calculations, mine design, mill design, metallurgy and mine feasibility studies and reports were also completed. During 2011, the Company’s Board of Directors made a production decision based on these reports, and the Company’s management, in conjunction with CDM Engineering and a contract mining company, set the Nancy Hanks mine portal and began underground mining operations in June 2011. During 2011, construction began for surface support infrastructure at the Nancy Hanks Mine. The Nancy Hanks Mine was developed to a length of 400 feet.
The Company is now moving forward with its plan to self-mine and anticipates beginning gold ore extraction from its Nancy Hanks Mine in 2013. Grant Hartford intends to initially ship this ore to the Golden Sunlight Mill in Whitehall, Montana for processing as it works to building an on-site milling and processing facility.
