From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Salmita Mine was a gold producer in the Northwest Territories, Canada during 1983 to 1987. The deposit was first discovered in 1945 and underground exploration was carried out in 1951-1952. It was reactivated for exploration by Giant Yellowknife Mines Limited in 1975 and entered production in 1983. They used the old camp and milling plant of the abandoned Tundra Mine, located a few kilometers to the south. The mine produced 179,906 troy ounces (5596 kg) of gold from the milling of 238,177 tons of ore.
