Kendrick Bay Mine
KETCHIKAN- Junior mining company, UCORE, is considering developing an underground rare earth metal mine on the very west end of Kendrick Bay.
If built, the project would use technology originally invented for the recycling industry resulting in a more environmental friendly project.
The process would take waste from the milling process and mix it back into the ground with cement.
