The Hoyle Pond underground mine is accessed by decline and by a shaft. The current winze configuration has the potential for expansion to access below 2,200 metres. Mining methods employed are conventional cut and fill, shrinkage, panel mining and longhole methods in wider zones.
Gold is recovered using a combination of gravity concentration and cyanidation techniques. The circuit consists of primary, secondary and tertiary crushing, rod/ball mill grinding, gravity concentration, cyanide leaching, carbon-in-pulp gold recovery, stripping, electro winning and refining.
