About Meadowbank Complex and Our Nunavut Operations
Agnico Eagle is always looking for new talented team members to join our Nunavut mining operations. We have been operating at Meadowbank, our first Low Arctic mine, near Baker Lake for over nine years. The mine produced its three millionth ounce of gold in 2018. 2019 marked the last year of production at the Meadowbank mine, and has since transitioned to process ore from the Amaruq satellite deposit. With the official opening of the Amaruq Whale Tail Project in August 2019, the project is now referred to as the Meadowbank Complex.
Reporting to the Health and Safety General Supervisor, the Nurse is part of the Health and Safety Department and collaborates with other departments of the mine. The incumbent will be responsible for employee injury management, liaising with the WSCC for injury case management, new hire assessments, and working with our Medical Director as necessary. He/she will ensure that the goals and objectives are achieved while promoting and respecting Agnico Eagle’s culture, Health & Safety Code of Conduct, and the environment.
