Highbank contracts Foresight for barge-load out facility

Highbank Resources finalized a contract with Foresight Innovations of Victoria, B.C. to drive the pilings and complete the infrastructure for the company’s barge load-out facility at Swamp Point North.

Work is expected to commence at the foreshore site this month with completion anticipated in 2-3 weeks. Following the completion of the piling work the conveyor sections will be installed. This will complete the barge loading facility giving the company its vital marine link and ability to supply construction aggregates to any of the proposed and ongoing construction projects at the Port of Prince Rupert, Grassy Point, or other coastal installation (pipeline, LNG) requirements.

This facility gives Highbank a distinct competitive advantage in transportation costs over traditional trucking. It would take over 50 tandem truck loads to deliver the same volume of material as the company’s smallest barge load.
