Project: Malartic Stator Move

Malartic Stator Heavy Transport Project

Equipment Used:

Representing the second biggest gold reserve in Canada, the Canadian Malartic gold mine in the Abitibi mining district in Quebec underwent a development stage by the Osisko Mining Corporation. Part of this development was the installation of the facility’s gold processing equipment. Western was hired for the heavy lift portion of moving the processing facility’s 233,200lbs stator quarter sections from Toronto, Ontario to Malartic, Quebec. Due to the abnormal center-of-gravity and shape of the stator sections, railway clearances and logistics were a particular challenge to the project, which Western met with glowing results.
