The Jerritt Canyon Mine, located 50 miles north of Elko, Nevada, encompasses the Jerritt Canyon processing plant and four gold mines. Since mining began at Jerritt Canyon in 1981, more than 8M ounces of gold have been produced. Other than 2009, the mine has operated continuously.
Overview

The Jerritt Canyon processing facility represents one of only three such plants in Nevada that uses roasting in its treatment of refractory ores. Initially, Jerritt Canyon was designed to process oxide and mildly refractory gold ores. In 1989, the roasting circuit was added to the process for the treatment of highly refractory ores which are now being mined and processed at Jerritt Canyon.
