The Mary River Project is located on North Baffin Island in the Qikiqtani Region of Nunavut, Canada.
One of the most isolated mining sites in the world
The Mary River site is one of the most isolated mining sites in the world and the first large open pit mine within North America at this latitude.
The climate conditions of this location play an important role in the planning and execution of the Project as the area experiences very cold temperatures that average -30 Celsius in the winter and 24-hour darkness from November to January. Summers bring 24-hour daylight from May to August, but continued cool to cold conditions. While these conditions are typical of Arctic environments, they will require consideration in the planning and logistics relative to most Project activities, but especially to shipping, procurement, logistics, construction and field investigations.
