Underground stope optimization at Agnico Eagle’s Kittilä Mine

Mining Engineering, 2015, Vol. 67, No. 12, pp. 28-28
van Wageningen, A; Huttu, K.


PREVIEW:

The Kittilä underground mine in northern Finland is extracting one of the largest known gold deposits in Europe. Kittilä achieved commercial production on May 1, 2009, becoming Agnico Eagle’s first mine to open outside of Canada. The Kittilä orebodies were initially mined from two openpits – Suuri and Roura – and underground operations were added in October 2010. The pits were mined out in November 2012, so mining is now entirely underground in the Suuri and Roura deposits. Additional, small openpits will mine any remaining near-surface reserves in the future.
