Overview

Overview

Éléonore is a world-class, state-of-the-art facility that is among the largest gold mines in Quebec.

Éléonore is located in Eeyou Istchee/James Bay, in a remote corner of the Northern Quebec region, 800 kilometres north of Montreal on the 52nd parallel. Its first gold pour was on October 1, 2014, and it achieved commercial production on April 1, 2015.

Gold comes from the Roberto Deposit, which is marked by complex folding and faulting and is still open down plunge. The ore is mined from four horizons using sill and stope techniques, then processed onsite using a conventional circuit that includes crushing, grinding, gravity, flotation and cyanidation. Overall gold recoveries are 92%.

The operation has begun to develop a fifth mining horizon and build a production shaft, both of which will bring Éléonore closer to its full production capacity.

Newmont's agreement with the Cree Nation of Wemindji, the Grand Council of the Crees (Eeyou Istchee) and the Cree Nation Government (formerly the Cree Regional Authority) includes provisions for training and employment, developing business opportunities and promoting education. It also outlines a dispute resolution mechanism, and integrates Cree Traditional Knowledge into the mine’s environmental management process.

Éléonore promotes a diverse workforce. Its employees come from all over Quebec, with one quarter identifying as First Nations. The mine’s Summer Student Employment Program gives post-secondary Cree students a chance to learn more about the mining industry as they gain new skills and hands-on work experience. Éléonore actively supports Newmont efforts to recruit and integrate more women into all aspects of mining.

Environment

Environment

Éléonore works hard to minimize its impact on the environment, and has water, tailings and waste treatment plans in place. It has also developed several projects that reduce energy consumption, like its automated fan system. The system powers on as needed, increasing worker safety and reducing costs.
