‚ÄčIn 2011, we engaged our employees in a strategic planning process called 2020 Vision. Nearly 2,000 ideas to improve our operations and cut costs were generated by employees. From these ideas, we developed and implemented a strategic plan that resulted in a mine life extension to 2020.

Since then, we have extended our life-of-mine to early 2022 through effective cost management and the implementation of leading-edge technology like automation and ventilation-on-demand.
