The Doyon mine has both a shaft and a ramp for mobile equipment access. Once the ore has been mucked from the drawpoints, it is transported to the nearest ore pass and goes to one of the two crushers. Once crushed, the ore is loaded into skips from one of two automatic loading stations and hoisted to surface by the production hoist. At surface, the ore is transferred to the ore bin and then onto the mill for processing.
The Doyon Gold Mine facilities and equipment include a conventional mill equipped with a SAG mill and cyanidation and CIP processing facilities, a flotation circuit, a high-density sludge plant, a water treatment plant, a tailings pond and settling pond, electrical and mechanical maintenance shops and a headframe, mechanised mobile underground equipment, as well as a warehouse, a paste backfill plant and an administrative building.
Mouska Gold Mine’s principal facilities include a headframe, a service building housing electrical and mechanical shops and an administrative office. Access to underground is via a main shaft of 485 metres and an internal shaft of 560 metres. The internal shaft is located 1.2 kilometres east of the main shaft.
