The Eagle Mine located 53 km northwest of Marquette, Michigan, is owned by the Lundin Mining Corporation. The mine is a new state-of-the-art facility. We are excited to be a part of this significant achievement which is going from a greenfield project to a producing underground mine, a sight that has not been seen in this region in many years.
Cementation’s scope of work includes development of the main decline, level accesses, stope accesses and ventilation access drifts. The development portion is conventional drill-and-blast utilizing computerized jumbos for improved hole alignment. Contract mining is being carried out using a variation of the longhole stope mining method, incorporating computerized production drills and self-contained cable bolting jumbos. Cementation is also constructing intra-level ventilation and egress raises to facilitate production along with other essential underground installation and construction work. Cementation has already completed the mine’s two main 14.5 ft diameter ventilation raises and constructed a secondary egress. These vertical raises were raise bored, and the egress raise was supported prior to installing an Alimak elevator system.
