:: Rocmec Acquires Mill to go Within Mine

Rocmec Mining of Pointe-Claire, Que., is building a 70-t/d mill in its Rocmec 1 mine on the Quebec-Ontario border near Rouyn-Noranda. RSW-Beroma is supplying the plant and has agreed that it will be at full capacity by Oct. 18, 2008.

In what is a first for the Canadian mining industry, the gold mill will be installed underground on the 130-metre level of the mine. It relies on gravity and flotation to produce a high-grade concentrate that will be stored in barrels. The barrels will be shipped to a refinery for final treatment. Tailings from the mill will be used as backfill.
