Nearly 200 Jobs Lost in Mine Closure

After over a hundred a years in production, Goldcorp is shutting down the underground Dome Mine in Timmins.

The announcement was made on Thursday, putting nearly 200 employees from around the region out of a job.

Mining will continue at the Hollinger open pit and the Hoyle Pond Mine for what Goldcorp calls the foreseeable future.

Underground production is set to end mid-2016. 2014 numbers show 300-thousand ounces of gold produced in Porcupine. 2015 numbers will be out next month.
