LAC MINERALS LTD.
TORONTO, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Lac Minerals Ltd. (NYSE: LAC) announced today that the development work to recover the two miners at the Macassa Mine is proceeding ahead of schedule. The Development crew has completed the crosscut and have accessed the 6723 stope. The crosscut broke into the stope a few feet west of the back end of the scoop tram. The scoop tram is visible from the foot wall and is mangled from the debris on it. Based on limited recognizance of the area, it appears that the sill matte dropped intact from the hanging wall side into the stope along with other debris and muck. There are no signs of the miners either to the east or the west of the cross cut for as far as one can see which is approximately ten feet to the east and six feet to the west. The removal of the sill matte and other debris and muck will now begin. All drilling blasting and mucking will be done remotely. The sill matte itself will have to be blasted to allow for its removal in pieces. At this time the company is hopeful to meet the Jan. 6 deadline for mucking the stope, however, unknown problems could cause a delay. -0- 12/29/93 /CONTACT: Carl C.
