Harsh terrain, remote locations, hazardous materials, valuable resources and specialized equipment, all contribute to the extremely high security requirements faced by mining companies. The implications of even the slightest security breach can be huge - staff may be endangered, the environment may be threatened, and production is put at risk of being disrupted.
Detour Gold Corporation is a Canadian gold mining company centered around the Detour Lake project, a property exceeding 630 km2 located on the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in northeastern Ontario. With more than 15.6 million ounces in reserves, once fully operational, the mine is projected to produce an average of 657,000 ounces of gold annually over a period of 21.5 years, putting Detour Lake on track to become Canada’s largest operating gold mine.
Situated 185 km from the nearest town in Cochrane, selecting a security system that was proven, robust, and - most importantly - extremely reliable, was crucial in ensuring the safety and efficiency of the mine is never compromised. Being in such a remote location, there can be no concession for equipment failure.
