Performance management— an implementation process

Abstract Performance management is a systematic, practical approach to managing people. It is founded on some basic assumptions about people and is designed to focus on people in the work place. Organizing meaningful information and using it to involve people is a cornerstone of this system.
Some common sense practices are developed to involve people in an organization's effort to improve performance. The successful implementation of this program requires solid commitment and total involvement from all levels of supervision and employees for maximum results and lasting impact. All levels of supervision participate in training sessions to tailor the systems for implementation in their areas. This style of management is data-oriented and the bottom line of success is to measurably improve performance.

Summary: The environmental impact of the Rabbit Lake project is presented. Baseline data for fish, water, air and radon collected in 1973, 1975,1980 and 1986, are compared with post-development environmental monitoring data. Predicted environmental impacts for the developed Rabbit Lake and B-zone deposits are compared to the actual impacts.

Summary: This paper deals with the history, development, present and future of the Employee Assistance Programs in place at the Inco Ltd. operations in Thompson, Manitoba. It should be noted that, although many similar programs exist in various industries and jurisdictions, these programs had to be fine-tuned to meet the needs of Inco employees, having in mind the helping professional resources available in Thompson and its geographic location.

Summary: Since its startup in 1975, the Rabbit Lake mill has been modified to process both increased tonnage and higher grade ore.
Ore initially came from the Rabbit Lake pit. In 1985, a major mill expansion was commissioned to allow treatment of B-zone pit ore, which is mineralogically and metallurgically different from Rabbit Lake pit ore.
Mill modifications, and the changing ore characteristics and processing targets which made them necessary, are described.

Summary: The mining of the ore bodies at Rabbit Lake has in the past been by the open pit method. This method is presently being used to develop the B-zone and will continue into the future with the development of two smaller ore bodies, the A-zone andD-zone. The Eagle Point orebody will be developed by an underground method which will provide production and employment into the next century.
The ore bodies at B-zone, A-zone and D-zone are unique in that they are located under Wollaston Lake. To permit...

Summary: The requirements for a metallurgical acid plant treating smelter gases are both unique and demanding in terms of sulphur dioxide treatment and emission control. Since start up in 1981, the copper smelter at the Kidd Creek Division of Falcon-bridge Limited has undergone several major expansions. The expansion and modification of the acid plant has been an integral part of this process. Both production demands and government regulations dictate that this metallurgical acid plant be unique in...

Summary: The Canadian mining industry faces the prospects of a severe shortage of graduate mining engineers over the next decade. This arises from three factors: first, a growth in industrial activity; second, the average age of company engineering and management staff; and third, the reduced number of students in engineering faculties around the world. This paper aims to identify the critical factors underlying the trend of inadequate recruitment into higher education for mining and to examine means...

Summary: The Rabbit Lake story began in the late sixties and will continue -well into the twenty-first century. It is a story of success, of multiple ore body discoveries, of unique systems, and new methods made possible through innovative and state-of-the-art design. Two quite different geological systems host the five ore bodies mined, or slated to be mined. These two systems have yielded two distinct ore types, each with characteristic minera-logicalproperties and each requiring its own specific...

Summary: The uranium deposits upon which the Rabbit Lake project story is based are located at the eastern margin of the Athabasca Basin just west of Wollaston Lake in northern Saskatchewan. This paper provides a general review of the exploration history for the major deposits and the influence of an expanding geological data base, which served to guide the continuing exploration programs.
A brief description of each of the deposits is provided in order of their discovery and with emphasis upon their...

Summary: Talc ore from Bakertalc, Highwater, Quebec analyzing about 60% talc, previously dry ground to about 95% minus 53 nm was beneficiated in an 11.4 kg/h pilot-plant flotation circuit. A concentrate of 95.9% talc (necessary for paper-grade) was obtained at a recovery at 75.3% by employing 53 g/t of Dowfroth 250 collector at pH 9.2; further cleaning increased the grade to 97.2% talc at a recovery of 57.5%.
Flotation of fresh ground 60% minus 44 pm ore at a feed rate of 18.6 kg/h produced a grade of...
