Clynton Nauman President & CEO, Alexco Resource Corp.

Alexco owns and operates the Bellekeno silver mine, Canada’s only operating primary silver mine and one of the world’s highest-grade silver mines with a production grade of up to 1,000 grams per tonne.

The Company owns 100% of the historic Keno Hill Silver District, located in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The Bellekeno mine is located in this District, and Alexco is rapidly exploring other promising high-grade silver prospects on its other District properties.

Development decisions on three more targets are expected during 2012, with a goal of identifying 100 million ounces of silver in this prospective District and ramping up to more than 7 million ounces of annual silver production within the next decade. Video: Zurich, 2006.
