Welcome to the May edition of CORESafety TV — the online video program from the National Mining Association.
While it’s obvious that CORESafety is an effective safety and health management system for many large American mining operations, it’s also proving to be beneficial to at least one smaller “start-up” project – Twin Metals Minnesota.
Twin Metals Minnesota is a joint venture between Duluth Metals and Antofagasta Minerals in Chile that started back in 2010. The company recently submitted its Mine Plan of Operations to federal and state reviewers in December 2019.
If approved, it will eventually begin mining one of the world’s largest undeveloped deposits of critical minerals including copper, nickel, cobalt and platinum group metals.
Early on, Twin Metals started using CORESafety in its operations to address some minor safety issues they were experiencing with contractors and to develop an overall culture of safety.
Our May 2021 episode of CORESafety TV features an interview with Dean DeBeltz, Director of Operations and Safety at Twin Metals.
In this episode, we also take a look CORESafety’s Module #13 – Occupational Health.
