Century is an exciting development project that has the potential to extend the life of Porcupine Gold Mines and create economic opportunities in Timmins.

Quick Facts
Location Timmins, Ontario
District Porcupine
Ownership 100%
Type of Mine Open pit
Gold Resources (measured and indicated) 4.5 million ounces
Gold Resources (inferred) 900,000 ounces

Century is a potential large-scale open pit mine and related processing facility. It will double the depth and diameter of the existing open pit above the Dome Underground mine, adding to our reserves and increasing our production.

Century is part of our plan for growing our reserves by 20% by 2021

Key development milestones

Concept study on engineering, waste rock management and economics of an open pit mine and related processing facility – completed

Pre-feasibility study underway that includes possibility of adding lower grade ore from additional pits – expected completion in late 2018

Feasibility study – expected to begin in late 2018 or early 2019


The goals of the exploration program at Century are:

  • completing a surface geotechnical program
  • infill drilling from surface and underground to support converting a portion of the inferred mineral resources into indicated mineral resources
  • understanding the potential to extend the deposit below the open pit.
