Klondex hauls just 300 tons out of its Fire Creek mine in north central Nevada every day, but at an average gold head grade of nearly an ounce per ton.

Making the grade

Just four years into production, Klondex Mines’ flagship Fire Creek operation is on track to produce more than 100,000 gold equivalent ounces in 2017. To help guarantee equipment reliability at the world’s highest-grade gold operation, Klondex partners with Sandvik to perform all mobile maintenance under a Sandvik 365 Expertise On Site agreement.
