dc.description.abstract The Granduc Mine ceased production in April 1984. Salvage, reclamation and abandonment activities commenced immediately in preparation for a permanent closure of the mine property. In spite of the work volume and the extremely tight schedule, the abandonment program was completed by the end of October 1984. Lay off of some 377 mine employees was well executed as a result of hard work and combined efforts on behalf of management, labour and government. The history of the Granduc Mine is a legend in British Columbia and the North American mining scene but unfortunately has become one of the many mining operations to succumb to depressed metal prices. en
