The North American Tungsten Corporation’s Cantung Mine is the largest tungsten producer in the western hemisphere,
producing 300,000 metric tonne units (22.4 pounds per MTU) from 410,000 tons of ore per annum.
The mine is considered remote and is located in the Flat River valley of the rugged MacKenzie Mountains.
Originally a fully self-contained town, with a population peaking at 600, employees now commute in and out of the
site on a rotational schedule. The mine currently employs about 270 people (including contractors). Cantung Mine
Operations commenced in 1962 with an open pit, at a nominal 300 tons per day, but have been subject to
world tungsten prices and have incurred a number of shutdowns and re-starts. The last re-start was in
October 2010, the operation, with a complete upgrade of surface facilities, plant and residential; a completed mine
deepening program below the existing workings; new production and development equipment in the mine; new diesel
generators and management systems; waste heat recovery system; on-going underground diamond
drilling program; and a seasonal surface diamond drilling program. Cantung mine has just issued a 43-101
which now extends the mine life for another five years.
