Canadian mining is seeing a real drive to innovate that is strengthening our ability to get materials to global markets as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. And it’s changing what it means to work in mining. This week’s Blog takes a look at how Goldcorp aims to ambitiously increase production by 20 per cent at Borden by 2021 and, with help from Natural Resources Canada’s Clean Growth Program, is evolving the mine into the first all-electric underground gold mine in the country, which will be safer for its employees and have a smaller environmental footprint.
