McArthur River Project - the future of Key Lake

The Key Lake mill has operated since thefall of 1983. The ore from both Key Lake open pits will be depleted by 1997. It is planned to use this mill, located about 60 km southwest of McArthur, to process the McArthur River ore. While the geological data collected so far on the McArthur deposit are encouraging, more information of the deposit is needed before any detailed mine planning can begin. The surface during program identified the orebody and provided information on the geomechanical and hydrological properties of the overlying sandstone. It was proposed to conduct an underground exploration program to further delineate the orebody. This was approved following a public hearing and review process. This program involves the sinking ofa 630 metre deep shaft and the driving of one or two drifts along a portion of the orebody. From these drifts, exploration drilling every 10 m to 15 m through the orebody will provide the information required for the preparation of a feasibility study and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

Summary: Echo Bay's Lupin Operation has produced more than 2.15 million ounces of gold since start-up in 1982. The mining method used to the present time has been longhole open stoping using trackless equipment. Because direct measurement of the open stopes has not been possible until recently, determining the exact qantity of unplanned dilution in previously mined stopes has not been possible. Estimates of dilution have been made using comparisons between production tons and grades against ore...

Summary: The coal handling plant represents an investment of about $100 million in coal handling and storage equipment. The coal receiving is done by a continuous ship unloader that can handle ships in the 60 000 T range at a rate of 1750 /ph. A unique feature in the system is a stacker/reclaimer unit which will work inside a dome storage structure. The coal for the unit will include any low sulphur coal that can be delivered by sea at an economical price blended with New Brumwick high sulphur coal....

Summary: Quality management has always played an important role at the Iron Ore Company of Canada; particularly since the early eighties when the iron ore markets favoured buyers os opposed to sellers. Since that time, IOC's quality system has evolved from bosic quality control to the Deming philosophy and its 14 points, and on through various other phases to the ISO 9000 series.
