Hollinger Live Monitoring

The Hollinger Open Pit is one of the most significant mining projects ever undertaken by Goldcorp’s Porcupine Gold Mines (PGM). It involves the revitalization of an historic gold mine into a sustainable green space, with the unique challenges of being located immediately adjacent to the downtown core of the City of Timmins in Ontario.

Hollinger Vibration Monitors

Porcupine Gold Mines has eleven permanent vibration monitors surrounding the Hollinger Open Pit. The Timmins community has spoken, so we're giving you (even more) facts about blast vibrations. Hollinger Open Pit's average vibration levels are nearly 90% lower than levels deemed acceptable by the Ministry of Environment. Watch the video to learn more:https://youtu.be/8wr49CO4Knw

Site History

The Hollinger gold deposit was discovered in 1909 by Benny Hollinger and Alex Gillies, one of the “Big Three” mines which also included the McIntyre and Dome mines. The main Hollinger Mine operated from 1910 to 1968, during which time 65,778,234 tonnes of ore was milled, producing 19,327,691 ounces of gold, making it one of the richest mines in western hemisphere. In 1989 the site was closed, leaving behind numerous hazards on the property from mine shaft openings, near surface stopes, small pits and ground subsidences associated with previous underground mining activity. After four years of extensive review, it was determined that an open pit mine was the most appropriate long term solution for the property.

Extensive technical studies were completed during the feasibility stage of the Project in order to assess the potential environmental effects and assist in establishing appropriate prevention and mitigation plans. As part of this process, PGM has worked closely with the City of Timmins to develop a Best Management Plan which incorporates best practices currently used in the mining industry, in order to identify preventative or mitigative measures which can be implemented to minimize potential impacts to nearby residents to acceptable levels as defined by the City of Timmins, regulatory agencies and PGM’s corporate environmental standards

Hollinger Project Community Advisory Committee (HPCAC)

The Hollinger Project Community Advisory Committee is an Independent committee of citizens whose mandate is to be an informed sounding board between the community and Porcupine Gold Mines to assist in problem solving and to work towards building a sustainable community.
