Review of Practices at the Sullivan Mine

CIM Bulletin, 1952


M INING operators in common with other operators are confronted today with two serious problems, shortage of experienced workmen and rising costs. The following review of practices at the Sullivan mine of The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, Limited, outlines certain measures that have been responsible, during recent years, for minimizing the effect of these two problems. The paper is divided into three main sections: ( 1) Training programmes and job studies (2) Improved mechanization and equipment (3) Large-scale methods of operation
