    The Wild West may soon find itself in anoth-er gold rush frenzy: Golden Queen is buildingthe first fully-permitted gold mine to open inCalifornia in 50 years.

    Golden Queen Mining Company Ltd., aCanadian publically-held company, is develop-ing the Soledad Mountain Project, a fully per-mitted, open pit, heap leach gold and silver proj-ect located just outside the town of Mojave inKern County, Calif., about 90 mi. northeast ofthe Los Angeles International Airport. The proj-ect will use conventional open pit mining meth-ods and the cyanide heap leach and Merrill-Crowe processes to recover gold and silver fromcrushed, agglomerated ore. Construction hasstarted on site and commissioning is planned for2015.

    We expect to produce 1 million ounces ofgold and 10 million ounces of silver over thenext decade or so, said Lutz Klingmann, direc-tor and president of Golden Queen, who addedthat he predicts a 12-year mine life.

    Klingmann has been involved with GoldenQueen Mining Co. Ltd. since 2001 and has beeninstrumental in the development and permittingprocess of the Soledad Mountain Project. A sea-soned mine developer, Klingmann has devel-oped six mines, four of which were in the south-western United States, since mid-1981. Hisoperating experience spans the globe andincludes Africa, Venezuela, Canada and theUnited States.

    The primary ore types that will be mined arerhyolite porphyry and flow-banded rhyolite,pyroclastics and quartz latite porphyry repre-senting approximately 70, 10 and 20 percent ofthe ore tonnage respectively. Minor quantities ofsiliceous vein material (0.1 percent) will also bemined. The rock types will be found in differentareas and at various stages of the mine life. Theprimary rock types are of extrusive volcanic ori-
