Contractor partner Lillegaarden EL has wrapped up the main electrical installations at the mine. Completion of the component installations is set for the end of this month.

Company president James Tuer confirmed the work at White Mountain, which is processing on budget, brings it a step closer to shipping product.

Hudson's anorthosite is a calcium feldspar rock, which primarily consists of aluminum (31%), silicon (50%) and calcium (15%). The White Mountain anorthsoite is unique in its size and purity, according to company officials; the only larger anorthosite occurrence is on the moon.
Hudson owns 100% interest in White Mountain, which has a 100-year estimated mine life currently and is already fully permitted for 50 years.
