Fostering a future

Kirkland Lake Gold’s Fosterville Gold Mine, Victoria’s largest gold operation, started production in 2005 as an open pit mine and poured its millionth ounce in January 2016. During 2016, the mine produced a record 151,755 ounces of gold. Fosterville trialed a Sandvik TH663 for three months in early 2016, and impressive results led the mine to purchase the trial unit and two additional Sandvik TH663s to replace its aging 45-tonne trucks.
