New Afton Mine

Situated 10 kilometers west of picturesque Kamloops, British Columbia, the New Afton Mine is an underground gold and copper producing site.

Kamloops is a city of 90,000 people, located 350 kilometers east of Vancouver. The area provides the opportunity to live and work in a vibrant community with its own university and within easy reach of world class ski resorts, championship golf courses, mountain biking trails, popular recreational lakes, and award-winning vineyards.


Block Caving

New Afton Mine is currently the only operating block cave mine in Canada. Block Caving is an underground mass mining method that allows the extraction of larger and lower grade deposits than traditional underground mining methods. As many of the worlds large surface mines continue to exhaust their viable open pit reserves and new surface deposits continue to decrease, block caving will provide an economical method for continuing to mine these large deposits underground.

Block Caving presents some of the most complex technical challenges in mining. See New Afton’s Animated Block Caving video for more information.


Technology & Innovation

In keeping with New Gold’s values, New Afton Mine recently partnered with Sandvik to bring automated scoops underground. See Sandvik’s Mud Rush Mitigation video to learn more about this automated loading solution.
