Abcourt has two gold assets of quality, Elder and Sleeping Giant mines and several other properties with important gold mineralization. In zinc, there is the Abcourt-Barvue project with substantial zinc and silver resources and the following satellite properties: Vendome, Jonpol and Aldermac.

A surface drilling program is currently being done.


Currently, the Company is focussing on stabilizing and increasing the Elder production. Our objective is to produce 12,500 tonnes per month.

We wish to rise the full capacity of the Sleeping Giant mill by treating custom ore, to reduce the operating cost per tonnes treated.

For the long-term growth in the gold sector, the Company has started a drilling program on the Discovery and Flordin gold properties where substantial gold mineralization is found.


Abcourt Mines Inc. is a gold producer and a Canadian exploration company with strategically located properties in northwestern Quebec, Canada. The Elder property has gold resources (2018) and a positive P.E.A. study (2012). Abcourt is focusing on the exploitation of the Elder mine.

The Abcourt-Barvue property has silver-zinc resources (2014). A feasibility study was completed in 2007 by Roche / Genivar. An update is being prepared now.

In 2016, Abcourt acquired the Sleeping Giant mine and mill, located half-way between Amos and Matagami, in Abitibi, Quebec, in the territory covered by the Plan Nord of the Quebec government. The mill has a capacity of 700 to 750 tonnes per day. A NI 43-101 resource estimate was recently filed.
