Operation of Open-Pit Mine Equipment in Sub-Zero Weather ... Quebec Cartier Mining Company

Quebec Cartier Mining Company operates approximately two hundred and fifty pieces of equipment in a climate with a temperature that has averaged 27.5°F during the last seven years.

In some areas, high-cost cold-weather protective heating devices are being eliminated with experience.
