Newmont Goldcorp | Borden Mine Achieves Commercial Production

October 02, 2019

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.

Borden joins the next generation of Newmont Goldcorp mines and leverages our leading land position to anchor this new gold district in Ontario.”
Tom Palmer, Newmont Goldcorp’s President and Chief Executive Officer
