Operations

North American Palladium’s operations and exploration potential represent the long-term future of our business. Our Lac des Iles Mine features a unique, world-class ore body with modern infrastructure, including both an underground mine and surface operations.

In 2017, we successfully transitioned from longhole open stoping to the sublevel shrinkage (SLS) mining method in the lower part of the mine, which has increased total ore recovery, lowered operating costs, raised production rates and improved geotechnical ground conditions. We are now applying the SLS mining method to the upper part of the mine to help us become one of Canada’s largest and lowest-cost underground mines.
