AVERAGE PLANT THROUGHPUT:
Underground 4,400 TPD

The gold mineralization at Bell Creek mine is mined using underground longhole mining methods. At the Timmins West mine, primary mining methods include longitudinal and transverse longhole mining. Ore from both mines is processed at the Bell Creek mill via single-stage crushing and single-stage grinding, with a portion of the gold recovered by gravity methods, followed by pre-oxidation and cyanidation with carbon-in-leach and carbon-in-pulp recovery.
