History

The Camflo Mill was built in 1969 to mill ore from the nearby Camflo Gold Mine. The mill was acquired by Barrick Gold in 1984 when it purchased the Camflo Mining Company. In late 1992 Barrick announced that the Camflo Gold Mine would be closed after 29 years of production. On August 19, 1993, Richmont Mines acquired the Camflo Mill from Barrick for $1 and the assumption of any closing costs and environmental liabilities associated with the asset.
