Started by the late F.A. MacIntyre in 1958, later evolving into Alex MacIntyre & Associates Ltd., the company has earned and maintained a reputation for tackling and successfully completing some of Canada’s more difficult mining projects throughout its storied history.
Alex MacIntyre & Associates Ltd. have been supplying mine contracting services to the mining industry for over 50 years.
With a head office, CWB-certified shops and equipment yards located in Kirkland Lake, Ont., MacIntyre has successfully completed shaft sinking and mine development contracts throughout Canada, the United States and South America.
Mining clients in recent years include: Vale, De Beers, Barrick Gold, Kinross Gold, Agnico Eagle, Sudbury Contact, Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting, Canadian Malartic, Armistice Resources and Kirkland Lake Gold.
“We are really proud of our history being one of Canada’s oldest mining contractors and that translates into a great resource of experience in very diverse projects,” said James McDougall, manager of operations for MacIntyre.
“I think being around as a successful mining contractor for this long also speaks to the kinds of relationships we have with our clients and the level of quality work we always aim for. Our clients’ success is our success; that’s just how we look at the projects we take on.
“Our commitment to safety and the results of this commitment also speak to our success,” McDougall added.
“We have always strived to be the best when it comes to safety — there’s no other goal anyone should ever shoot for than that. It’s been very honouring to win some prestigious safety awards over the years, but for us it comes down to the sustained quality of life our people have working for us. People in many industries talk about safety culture and it is the cornerstone of a successful safety program.”
Alex MacIntyre & Associates Ltd. is a uniquely diverse mining contractor, as it provides services in all areas of mining, from shaft sinking, mine development and production, mine construction, electrical mechanical installations, mechanized raise mining, mine dewatering to mine closures.
They are also involved in surface mining and pits.
“We pride ourselves on being a full-service solution for our clients’ mining projects, and we have the experience and people to understand the projects needs and see it through,” McDougall said.
