Lapa is an underground mining operation located 11km east of Agnico Eagle's LaRonde mine, benefiting from operational synergies that exist between both mines. Given the relatively short mine life (2009 -2017), no stand alone processing plant was constructed. Instead, ore is treated at the nearby La Ronde plant. In 2016, the mine produced 74koz of gold. Mining operations are expected to cease at the end of Q3 2017, with full-year gold production estimated at 40koz.
