Encyclopedia > Camlaren Mine

The Camlaren Mine was a small gold producer north-east of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories at Gordon Lake. It was staked in 1936 and developed with two shafts during 1937-1938. It did not produce any gold until 1963 when a large amount of ore was trucked to the nearby Discovery Mine. Mining Corporation of Canada Limited erected a milling plant at Camlaren and produced more gold in 1980-1981. The mine has been developed to 1,000 feet depth. During its two operational periods, the mine has produced 36,661 ounces of gold from 64,137 tons of ore. The property was demolished sometime after the 1981 closure, and only the old chimney from the mine manager's house remains.
