Creating new development opportunities and advancing the Yukon mining industry

WE’VE RESUMED OPERATIONS

Minto is an environmentally focused copper and gold mine located near Whitehorse, Yukon. After one year of care and maintenance in 2019, the Minto mine has resumed operations and increased processing capacity. We’re now actively creating value for the greater Yukon community through education and career opportunities.

OPERATIONS

We are currently in operations and mining and milling ore from the Minto East and Copper Keel ore bodies.

Join us for a virtual tour of the Minto mine site and the operations with our General Manager, Sebastien D. Tolgyesi.

Mining is performed 100% underground using longhole stoping methods

Mined ore is extracted from the mine with 45 tonne haul trucks

Ore is processed through the mill and copper/gold concentrate is extracted

Copper concentrate is shipped to our partner and customer in Japan via Skagway, Alaska

OUR PEOPLE. OUR PASSION.

We strive for sustainability in every aspect of our work. From our environmental practices to community initiatives – we aim to create a positive impact that will last for generations to come.

Invested in the Yukon community

Community involvement is foundational to Minto. We are proud to partner with the Selkirk First Nation and invite young adults from Pelly Crossing to come and learn about mining. We also partner with Yukon University and frequently host on-site student tours. Our goal at Minto is to support the community through education, career opportunities, and local and provincial economic development.

Committed to environmental practices

Sustainability is key to Minto’s operations strategy. We aim to minimize the impact of our operational activities by respecting the natural environment and communities in which we operate. We ensure all employees, contractors and visitors take reasonable care for the protection of the natural environment, native resources, and biodiversity.

Connected to each other

From the most senior position to the most recent hire, each person plays a critical role in Minto’s success. Here, everyone knows everyone and you’re welcomed in like family. The Yukon mining industry can be hard, but as other mines in the region have closed, Minto has become a place for people of all backgrounds and experiences to unite and do great work together.

WE’RE AFTER NEW OPPORTUNITIES THAT WILL BENEFIT EVERYONE

Minto is diligently working on optimizing the mine design, improving operating costs, and expanding exploration targets to create a bright and profitable future for our employees, our community, and our stakeholders.

What’s happening now?

We’re working on extending the mine life by performing definition and step out drilling of known mineralized zones to increase reserves and resources.

We’re initiating an exploration program to look for new targets in Minto’s large and strategic land package within the Minto Copper Belt.
