TORONTO WESDOME GOLD MINES has reached a milestone: having poured one million oz of gold between 1987 and 2008. The occasion was marked with a site visit and underground tour at the Eagle River gold mine near Wawa, Ontario.
The Wesdome Group opened its first gold mine, the Joubi mine in Val d’Or, Quebec, in 1987; it was closed in 1999 after producing 62,284 oz of gold. The Edwards mine operated from 1997 to 2002, recovering 139,692 oz of gold.
Wesdome operates three mines at the present time. The Eagle River mine has produced 711,139 oz of gold since it opened in 1995; the Mishi mine near Wawa has produced 15,426 oz since it opened in 2002; and the Kiena mine in Val d’Or has produced 44,188 oz since the company reopened it in 2006.
