VANCOUVER: Copper Mountain Mining Corporation announces that it has been awarded the 2014 Edward Prior Award by the B.C. Government, an award  presented annually to the mining operation having worked between 200,000 and 1,000,000 worker hours during the year, with the lowest injury frequency rate (Loss Time Incident “LTI”).

Representatives from the Copper Mountain Mine recently attended the B.C. Mines Safety Awards Banquet in Victoria and accepted the award on behalf of all the team members at the mine.

Jim O’Rourke, President and CEO of Copper Mountain, says: “I congratulate our mine employees for their dedication to safety while continuing to achieve new operational records at the mine.  During the first 19 days of April, the mill has operated at record rates and throughput averaged 39,800 tpd. We have a strong operating team and I am confident that the team will continue to maintain their great safety record while they continue to maximize production. As of this week the mine has worked over 1.5 million hours LTI free.
