We just received great news from work by email about the time I got home. Looks like we will be adding a 20-30 years to the life of the mine. If anyone is interested here is the video that will be released with news conference tomorrow.
We are now about 800 employees and they think it should go to 1500.
At the moment we are Canada’s largest open pit gold mine and it looks like we will become Canada’s largest underground gold mine.
My boss sent us a message saying that this means we can work here until we retire. I started working here just over 2 years knowing the open pit has about 5-7 years, and I’m 41 so this can be true. Only downside is I live 100kms away from work.
