21.3.8 Labor
The cost of labor is based on the 2010 Mining Industry Compensation and Benefits
Survey escalated to 2014 costs. Tables 21.5 thru 21.8 present the initial staffing details for
the mine, PUG, Hydromet and TSF.
Labor at the mine varies over the entire life of mine. Initially there are 71 persons
operating the mine. This increases to a peak of 106 persons as the mining rate increases.
In year 37 the ore will be mined out and mining operations will cease except for hauling
ore from the low-grade stockpile. Only 25 persons are required to operate the mine
during this period.
At the PUG plant, there are 7 persons initially. When the PUG plant is upgraded in year
10, twenty-six persons will be required for the duration of the project.
The Hydromet plant starts out with 55 employees. In year 10, some equipment moves to
the PUG plant, and the labor force is reduced to 51 persons. Five persons are required
for operating the TSF over the life of the project.
Administration of the project will require an additional 11 persons beyond those listed
above. The total labor force will be 149 persons initially and the peak labor force will be
199 persons.
