Lac des Iles Mines (LDI)is the Company ’s flagship mine and is one of only two primary
palladium producers in the world. The mine is located approximately 85 km northwest of
the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario and consists of an underground mine, and a large 15,000
tonne per day Mill with significant excess capacity available for future production growth.
LDI is currently undergoing a major expansion of its tailings management facility and has
recently transitioned to a new high volume bulk mining method in the underground mine.
Through the utilization of the shaft and higher mining rates, LDI is expected to benefit from
increased production at reduced cash costs per ounce, transforming the mine into a long
life, low cost producer of palladium.
