The Stanleigh Mine is an abandoned uranium mine located approximately 3 km northeast of Elliot Lake, Ontario, owned and operated by Rio Algom Ltd. The site has been rehabilitated and is currently undergoing environmental monitoring.

The mine was in operation from 1958 to 1961, and again from 1983 to 1996.[1] During this time, it produced 14 million tonnes of ore[citation needed]
