Nugget Pond Gold Plant


The Nugget Pond gold plant is located in the north east corner of the Baie Verte mining district, near the community of Snooks Arm, in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Assets and Infrastructure

The Nugget Pond mill was built in 1995 by Richmont Mines and operated as a gold plant for over 10 years, processing ore from both the former Nugget Pond and Hammerdown underground gold mines. It operated as a carbon-in-pulp (CIP) hydrometallurgical circuit capable of treating up to 500 tonnes per day. Historic gold recoveries on Hammerdown mineralization at Nugget Pond were over 97.0% during past operations and recent metallurgical test work on new samples from Hammerdown confirmed gold recoveries of 95.5% can be expected through the whole-ore leach circuit with a grind size of 80% passing 50 microns. The Nugget Pond gold circuit last operated in 2013 and was acquired in 2021 from Rambler Metals & Mining.
