We are Pretivm – a Canadian mining company and the proud owner of the Brucejack Gold Mine. Headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Pretium is creating value through gold by ramping up production of the 100%-owned Brucejack Mine. The Brucejack Mine is a 2,700 tonnes-per-day high-grade gold underground mine located in northwestern British Columbia, approximately 65 kilometers north of Stewart.  The mine began commercial operation in the summer of 2017 and produced 154,484 ounces of gold during the first six months of ramp-up. A feasibility study completed in June 2014 and updated in December 2016 has outlined Proven and Probable mineral reserves in Brucejack’s Valley of the Kings comprising 8.1 million ounces of gold (15.6 million tonnes grading 16.1 grams per tonne gold).
