The plan calls for process for a pilot mill, designed to run about 100 tons per day of high grade molybdenum ore and concurrent permitting for a production mill designed to process up to 1500 tons per day. The pilot mill will help the Company refine its recovery process for both gold and molybdenite ores.
Molybdenum is obtained from two different types of mines: primary mines and by product mines. At primary mines its recovery is the prime target of the mining operation. Climax Molybdenum Company, a subsidiary of Freeport McMoRan, has two primary mines in Colorado, with the Henderson mine currently operating half a mile under the Continental Divide.

Climax Molybdenum, a subsidiary of Freeport McMoRan, is the largest producer and supplier of molybdenum operating right here in Colorado. Named after the Climax Railroad Station at the top of the Continental Divide, the mine operates the underground Henderson Mine near Empire, the Henderson Mill in Grand County, and the Climax Mine near Leadville.
The Ashdown Mine Gold Molybdenum Mine is near Denio, Nevada. Historically the site has been associated with the Vicksburg Warm Springs Mining District which is now part of the Pine Forest Range Wilderness. The site was first discovered in 1860. The Ashdown Mine Gold Molybdenum Mine is a surface and underground mining operation.
