General Information

Abstract: This report on the Whitehorse Copper Belt is written by a geologist who was actively involved in mining and exploration in the district during the decade of the seventies. It includes a review of earlier data and compiles recent work, mining practice, geological concepts and constraints and problems in development and mining. Earlier reports on the district by McConnell and Kindle emphsized geology; this report concentrates on mining and development. The report was written when mining in the district was at its peak; it will be useful to those contemplating future development in the Copper Belt and for comparing the district to others. Mining in the Copper Belt may cease soon and the report was solicited by D.I.A.N.D. from Whitehorse Copper Mines as a record of mining practice and geological concepts.
