Proven & Probable Reserves

1,910,0001 ounces of gold

  • (1) 23,168,000 tonnes with an average grade of 2.56 grams per tonne gold.


Wasamac is an underground gold project located 15 kilometres west of Rouyn-Noranda in Quebec’s prolific Abitibi region and 100 kilometres west of Yamana's 50%-owned Canadian Malartic mine. The geological characteristics of the Wasamac gold deposit suggest it holds the potential to be an underground mine achieving the same scale, grade, production and costs as Yamana’s successful Jacobina mine in Brazil, and it possesses many parallels to the Company’s Odyssey underground project at Canadian Malartic.
