Diamond-Drill Stoping at Waite-Amulet

APPROXIMATELY 95 per cent of Waite-Amulet's Lower A orebody will be mined by diamond-drill stoping. This method of stoping was developed, and has been successfully applied, at the Noranda mine in recent years(1) and is now used in several base-metal and gold mines in northwestern Quebec and in other parts of Canada, South Africa, and Australia.
