Taseko’s Gibraltar Mine Recognized for Outstanding Safety Performance
March 16, 2016
On March 7th, 2016 the Province of British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines awarded Gibraltar with the John Ash award at the 54th Annual Mine Safety Awards held in Victoria, BC, for the second year in a row.
This prestigious award goes to the mining operation in British Columbia that has worked at least one million hours during the year with the lowest injury-frequency rate.
Dave Rouleau, Taseko’s VP of Operations, of Taseko Mines Limited, stated, “Taseko and Gibraltar employees are performance oriented, focused on maintaining a world class operation. Operating with high standards is paramount to the Company’s foundation. It is because of the concerted effort of management, employees, and contractors that our high health and safety standards have not only been continuously met, but have been precedent setting within British Columbia’s mining industry. The accident free period continues and now exceeds three million worker hours.”
The Mine Safety Awards were established in 1961 by the British Columbia Ministry of Mines and Petroleum Resources to recognize the safety record of mines in the province. Each year, these awards honour mining operations for their safety accomplishments.
