Cantung Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Cantung Mine is located in the Nahanni area of western Northwest Territories, Canada, approximately 300 km by road northeast of Watson Lake, Yukon, close to the Yukon border. The Cantung deposit was discovered by prospectors in 1954 while looking for copper in the area. The mine commenced production in 1962 from an open pit at the rate of 300 short tons per day. Supression of tungsten prices at various times over the mines history caused it to suspend operations and the mill was once destroyed by fire causing a complete shut down of acivities until a new one could be built. Underground mining began in 1974 having found the E-zone during deep drilling in 1971. The CanTung Mine is a primary producer of tungsten concentrates from underground operations. Major features and facilities associated with Cantung are: The Cantung deposits, consisting of the Open Pit resource near surface, and the E Zone, underground; The physical plant site including an underground mine, a small open pit, process plant, diesel power plant, workshops, warehouses, administration buildings, a town site and single status accommodation, and an airstrip; Waste rock storage facilities and a tailings storage facility. The Cantung mine suspended operations in October 2009 and resumed production in October 2010.
