Selkirk Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Tati Nickel includes the Phoenix open pit nickel mine and the Selkirk underground nickel mine. The Selkirk mine is located 15 km from the Phoenix mine and the underground mining operations began in 1989. In 2002, the underground mine was put on care and maintance due to the depletion of copper and nickel ores accessible for underground mining. As the Selkirk deposit also contains disseminated ore reserves, a fiasibility study is now being prepared for the open pit mining of these reserves and test operations are run.
