Long Hole Drillers

Lake Shore Gold is located in Timmins, Ontario.
The Bell Creek Complex, located approximately 20 kilometers northeast of Timmins, Ontario, consists of an underground mine and processing facility. Mineralization is associated with the Porcupine-Destor fault system within the Abitibi greenstone belt, with ore mined by narrow vein longhole stoping methods. Ore is then transported to surface via a newly commissioned 1080m deep shaft at a mining rate of 1800 tpd.
The Timmins West mine is located approximately 18 kilometres west of Timmins, Ontario, one of the world’s most prolific gold camps. Mineralization is associated with the Porcupine-Destor fault system within the Abitibi greenstone belt. The Timmins West mine is comprised of the Timmins deposit, which has been in commercial production since January 2011, and the Thunder Creek deposit, which achieved commercial production in January 2012. The newly discovered 144 Gap deposit, located approximately 600 metres from the Thunder Creek deposit, is currently under development with commercial production expected in 2017. All three deposits are interconnected by underground drifts.
