Project Details


The La India mine is located approximately 200km east of Hermosillo in Sonora, Mexico. The 604km2 property includes the La India mine site, the Tarachi gold resource and several other prospective exploration targets, situated in the Mulatos gold belt. The La India mine hosts proven and probable reserves of 800,000oz gold contained within 27.1Mt ore, grading 0.9g/t gold. Agnico Eagle's Pinos Altos and Mascota mine complex is approximately 70km southeast of La India, providing operating synergy between the two properties. Agnico Eagle acquired the La India property from Grayd Resource in November 2011. Within 22 months, the company had completed the design, permitting, construction and start-up of the La India mine. Mining began in September 2013, with initial leaching the following month. The first gold from La India was poured in November 2013. Commercial production was achieved in February 2014. La India is expected to pour 50,000oz gold in 2014, and to average 90,000oz/y gold in 2015, 2016 and over its reserve life.
