With its Canadian Malartic and Barnat open pits, Canadian Malartic Mine is Canada’s largest operating open-pit gold mine. We are located in the Town of Malartic, in the heart of Québec’s Abitibi Gold Belt.
Developing the Barnat gold deposit, which is an extension of the current pit, is the result of the Malartic Extension Project. Started in 2017, this project first consisted of the construction of a 4-kilometre or so deviation of Route 117 to the east of the Town of Malartic. The deviation was opened to traffic in the fall of 2019 allowing the pre-commercial production of the Barnat pit.

The Canadian Malartic Mine has introduced numerous measures to reduce the potential impact of its operations, including:

Equipment was down for more than 10 000 hours in 2021.
In 2021, the Canadian Malartic Mine fully complied with Québec standards governing air* quality, water quality, and noise. Furthermore, compliance with blasting standards was 99.3%.
* Pursuant to the Clean Air Regulation. From May 8, 2015, to December 31, 2021.
When mining ceases, we plan to, among other things:
