Sitting at an elevation of 5000 feet, Brucejack is an underground gold mine owned and operated by Pretium Resources Inc. Earthworks for mine site preparations at the Brucejack Mine, located in northwestern British Columbia, included construction of level areas for mine facilities and lay-down areas, drainage, and the contact water pond.

Scope of Work

Arthon, with Belvedere Place Contracting Ltd. (BPC), performed site preparation and earthworks for the development of the Brucejack Mine. BPC and Arthon continue to work together on advantageous projects. 

This work included the preparation of level areas for the ore processing plant, permanent camp, and laydown areas via drill, blast, and rock fill operations. Earthworks involved mill site and camp pad development, developing quarry operations for the mine site, installation of drainage facilities, and construction of the contact water pond.

Challenges overcome at the Brucejack project included: 

  • Maintaining a demanding 24-hour work schedule
  • Severe winter weather conditions including working around avalanche blasting and road closures  
  • Transportation of crews, supplies, subcontractors, and equipment to and from an incredibly remote 5000-foot elevation location
  • A high security accessed site
