Newmont Goldcorp’s Borden mine near Chapleau, Ontario has achieved commercial production safely, on schedule and within budget. Last week, government and First Nations dignitaries helped inaugurate the mine during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The mine features state-of-the-art health and safety controls, digital mining technologies and processes, and low-carbon-energy vehicles.
At 1,000 square kilometers, Borden’s land package represents additional exploration upside, as the deposit remains open at depth in a favorable mining jurisdiction.
Ore from Borden is processed at Porcupine’s mill near Timmins, Ontario, profitably extending operations at the gold mining complex.
