"The Latouche Mining Method has been used at the Alaska Juneau Gold Mining Company only since 1933, and is used in that part of the mine below the main tramming level. It consists of a series of radiating "long holes" (21 feet) drilled from stope raises, over the back of the stope. These holes break the rock into the stopes, from where it goes through bulldoze chambers to oreways leading to chutes on the No. 10 level. On this level, the ore is drawn into Granby Cars, trammed to the Main Shaft, and hoisted to No. 4 level. On this level, it is loaded into ten-ton cars, and trammed directly to the mill with the ore from the rest of the mine. The Latouche Mining Method is not very widely known or used. The purpose of this paper is to describe the method in general detail, as used at this mine"--Introduction, page 1.
