The Highland Valley Copper mine is the largest copper mine in Canada. “Operations at Highland Valley began over 20 years ago by predecessor companies. The present operation is a combination of the Lornex mine and mill, the Valley Copper orebody and the Highmont mill” (Teckcominco).

The operation is located about 17 kilometers west of the Town of Logan Lake and about 75 kilometers SW of Kamloops, BC (Min Res).
The mine exploits a low-grade copper molybdenum porphyry, with a granitic host rock and widely scattered chalcopyrite, bornite, and molybdenite as the primary ore minerals (Min Res). The large strip open pit mine is operated chiefly using P&H shovels and Caterpillar trucks (Min Tech). “Sulphides occur chiefly as disseminations in quartz veinlets, and in phyllic (bornite) and potassic (chalcopyrite) alteration zones. Mineralization includes bornite and chalcopyrite, with minor digenite, covellite, pyrite, pyrrhotite, molybdenite, sphalerite, and galena. The oxide zone averages 4.5 metres in thickness, and contains limonite, malachite, pyrolusite, digenite, native copper, and tenorite(?)” (Govt. of BC).
