Golden Bear Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Golden Bear mine is a closed underground and open pit heap leach gold mine located in the extreme northwest corner of British Columbia, 100 kilometers west of the town of Dease Lake. The mine is accessible by way of a 153 kilometer long access road from the Telegraph Creek road. The site is within the Tahltan Highland Ecosection which is a transitional area lying between the coastal mountains and the interior plateaus. Elevation on the site ranges from 957 meters to 2,614 meters, so mining activities on the site occurred in sub-boreal forest through to alpine environments. The Golden Bear mine was originally discovered by Chevron Minerals who, in partnership with Homestake Mining, operated the site from 1989 to 1993. In 1993 the property was sold to Wheaton River Minerals and was operated by North American Metals Corp (NAMC) which became a subsidiary of Goldcorp Inc. following a merger between Wheaton and Goldcorp Inc. on April 15, 2005. Mining started at the Golden Bear mine in 1989 as an underground and open pit operation that fed a small mill with a roaster and gold leach circuit. The mining and milling shut down in 1994 and then reopened in 1997 as a seasonal heap leach operation. A combination of open pit and underground ore was used to build two heap leach pads that continued to produce gold until 2001. Mining at the Golden Bear mine was completed in 2000 when the economic ore was depleted.
