The Raglan Mine operates several nickel mines north of the 60th parallel, in Northern Québec and Nunavik. Given their remote locations, these mines must be self-sustaining and stable to maximize operational profitability. In 2012, Raglan Mine encountered instability issues with one of its semi-autogenous shredders because of variations in ore composition. Unfortunately, this instability led to a drop in productivity, equipment breakage, premature wear of mill cladding, increased energy costs and, finally, a marked reduction in the volume of processed ore.
