The Kiena Mine is located in the highly prospective Val d’Or, Quebec gold camp. The Kiena Deep A Zone, discovered in 2016 is located within the mines existing infrastructure, including a 930 metre deep shaft and 2,000 tonne per day mill, and is fully permitted. After successful completion of a PFS study, a restart of operations was announced on May 26, 2021.

Located on prospective Abitibi Greenstone Belt


Commercial production declared December 1, 2022

Successful ramp development in 2023 will potentially allow Kiena to achieve production levels in line with the 2021 PFS

Significant upside to current reserve and resources

Paste fill plant and development rates performing above expectations
