Leeville Gold Mine Underground Mining Services
Newmont Mining Corporation
In February 2016, Procon was awarded a Cable Bolting Project at Newmont’s Leeville Gold Mine, located near Elko in Eureka County, North of Carlin, Nevada, USA. Working in close partnership with Newmont, Procon was providing a qualified workforce including supervision, labour and safety professionals. The scope of work for the project included equipment and labour mobilization and training, equipment set up, and ground stabilization work including MAI rockbolts, CT rockbolts, and cable bolt installation.
Newmont’s Nevada operations account for approximately one-third of Newmont’s worldwide gold production. We were thrilled to be part of the project and to be able to expand our mining services to the USA.
