The Leeville Mine – Nevada Gold Mine’s Large Underground Complex
SMD is proud to be Nevada Gold Mines (formerly Newmont) underground mining partner. We started this partnership with Newmont when we portaled at Carlin East in September 1993. Fast forward a few years and SMD crews helped connect the Leeville shaft to Carlin East in 2005. We worked continuously at Leeville until June of 2014 helping establish infrastructure, develop, and mine this massive, world-class orebody.
After a short absence, we are now back at Leeville. We are currently installing long term ground support, bulkheads, airdoors, and raise cans.
