Klondike Silver Corp. has been rewarded with silver, lead, zinc production resulting from its exploration and development work on the Hinkley Mine which lies just one mile from the Company's 100 ton per day Sandon Mill. In 2008 the Company implemented a program of off-setting exploration expenses with selective mine production in areas where a greater geological understanding is required. The benefit to the company is the limiting of share dilution while at the same time conducting active exploration in one of Canada's richest silver camps.
Klondike Silver Corp. has established a dominant presence in the Slocan Mining District of British Columbia which has produced more than 65 million ounces of silver plus associated base metals since the late 1800's. The company's assets include at least 25 past producing mines, a fully permitted 100 tonne per day flotation mill and 25,000 hectares (61,000 acres) of highly prospective exploration lands.
The Slocan mining district has contributed greatly to the economic development of British Columbia. Published reports estimate that the present day value of the silver, lead and zinc mined from the Silvery Slocan exceeds $30 billion, more than the projected value of the combined California, Cariboo and Klondike gold rushes.
