Our Haile Gold Mine is an open pit gold mine, located along the eastern coast of the United States in the state of South Carolina. The historic site dates back to 1827, making it one of the first operating gold mines in the United States. The site has been in production on and off for nearly 200 years.
Today, the Haile Gold Mine employs more than 600 people within the region and has a positive economic impact of $87 million USD per year in Lancaster County alone, and is considered the largest gold mining operation on the eastern coast of the United States. In January 2017, OceanaGold celebrated the first modern-day gold pour at Haile and have since announced a 2019 production guidance of 145,000 to 160,000 oz gold. With the use of modern mining technology, exploration at Haile has revealed additional ore deposits below the open pit areas, hence we are pursuing an expansion from open pit mining to underground mining.
