Underground means change

For the transition from open-pit to underground mining we:

  • Needed several dozen pieces of new mining equipment
  • Are moving primarily ore and virtually no waste rock
  • Required heaters to warm the fresh air we pump underground
  • Built crusher and paste backfill plants
  • Increased our power plant capacity
  • Doubled water treatment capacity
  • Raise the processed kimberlite containment dam to increase capacity
