Fly-In Program at Rabbit Lake

CIM Bulletin, Vol. 69, No. 774, 1976

F. R. Nogas, Manager, Human Resources, Gulf Minerals Canada Limited, Toronto, Ontario

Because of the elements of uncertainty and instability associated with single-enterprise communities, there is increasing interest in the alternatives to developing additional new communities of this nature. Gulf Minerals Canada Limited has chosen a unique alternative means to accommodate employees at a new uranium mine/mill complex at Rabbit Lake in Northern Saskatchewan. Gulf has adopted a fly-in program which moves their staff from a 450 mile radius, in and out of the on-site facilities, on a 7-day rotation.
