NEVADA – Vancouvers QUADRA MINING is proud of its Robinson mine crew, who have reached the one-million-person-hours milestone without a lost time accident. The copper mine is located 11 km west of Ely in White Pine County. In addition to operating more than a year without a lost time accident, the mine has dramatically reduced medical reportable incidents, first aid cases and material damage incidents, says Quadra. The U.S. national average for open pit metal mines is 3.03 medical reportable injuries per 200,000 person-hours worked. Robinson has been free of reportable injuries so far in 2007, and a rolling 12-month average puts the mine at less than half the national average.
During 2007, the mine is expected to produce 125 million lb of copper and 60,000 oz of gold. The conventional mill has a nameplate capacity of 38,000 t/d. Falcon gravity concentrators were installed in 2005 to recover molybdenum in concentrate.
