Damang Gold Mine
The Damang Gold Mine is located in western Ghana, about 280 kilometres by road west of Accra, and 30 kilometres northeast of the Tarkwa mine. Gold Fields Limited (71.1% interest) is the operator, and the Republic of Ghana holds 10%.
The Doyon mine produced its five millionth ounce of gold in January 2006. The mine began as an open pit operation in 1980, with underground mining starting in 1985 and replacing open pit production entirely in 1989. Cambior acquired a 50% interest in 1986, and purchased Barrick Gold's 50% interest in 1998. The mine is serviced by a 1,020-metre deep shaft with a ramp for mobile equipment access.
Sleeping Giant Mine
Gold mineralization occurs in high grade narrow veins, some of which remain open at depth. Mine access is by a 1,060-metre deep shaft. Ore is treated in a 900 tonnes per day mill that uses the carbon-in-leach process.
Mupane Gold Mine
The Mupane Gold Mine is located 30 kilometres southeast of Francistown in the Tati greenstone belt in southern Botswana, and was acquired by IAMGOLD through its acquisition of Gallery Gold on March 22, 2006. Mupane, a Gallery Gold discovery in 1998, began production in late 2004. It is an open pit operation, with mining in the main Tau pit and several smaller pits
The Niobec underground mine is located 15 kilometres northwest of Chicoutimi in the province of Quebec. The 2,455-hectare property is North America's only source of pyrochlore, the primary niobium ore, and one of only three major producers of niobium. It produces a niobium pentoxide concentrate that is converted on site into standard grade ferroniobium (FeNb)
The Rosebel open pit gold mine, acquired by IAMGOLD in November 2006 through its merger with Cambior, is located approximately 100 kilometres south of Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname. Rosebel began commercial production in February 2004. The $95 million mine came on stream on schedule and on budget, reflecting the Company's 13 years of operational
Sadiola Gold Mine
The result of an IAMGOLD discovery in the early 1990s, the Sadiola Gold Mine in western Mali began full production in 1997. AngloGold Ashanti is the operator, with a 38% interest; the other partners in the operation in addition to IAMGOLD (38%) are the Republic of Mali (18%) and International Finance Corporation (6%), a member of the World Bank Group.
Tarkwa Gold Mine
Tarkwa consists of an open pit mining operation on the Tarkwa property and adjacent northern portion of the Teberebie property, two heap leach operations and a carbon-in-leach plant commissioned in 2004. The Tarkwa (North) heap leach plant began production in 1998, while the Teberebie (South) heap leach plant, acquired by Tarkwa in 2000, has been in operation
Yatela Gold Mine
Yatela began production in 2001. It is an open pit operation, with mining carried out by the same contractor as at Sadiola. Heap leaching is carried out at a rate of approximately 2.9 million tonnes per year, and final gold recovery is completed at the Sadiola site.
