The Meadowbank Gold Mine is an open pit gold mine operated by AgnicoEagle Mines in the Kivalliq district of Nunavut, Canada. Discovery. Discoveries of goldcontaining Archean greenstone in the Baker Lake region were made in the 1980s. Asamera Minerals and Complex set out as partners in the project.
Gold deposits along the general gold path can be small or large, depending upon the size of the gold trap. The most important type of gold trap in river mining is called the "paystreak". Paystreaks always form along the gold path where the river's flow slows down on a large scale during a major flood storm.
