National Trophy for Select Mines



Mikisew North American Limited Partnership, Aurora Mine Site

Since 1953, North American Construction Group (NACG) has provided services to large oil, natural gas, and resource companies, specializing in the Canadian oil sands region. We are one of the largest providers of heavy construction and mining services in Western Canada and maintain the largest independently owned equipment fleets of any heavy civil construction and mining contractor in Canada.  NACG partnered with the Mikisew Group in 2018. 

In 2023, Mikisew North American Limited Partnership (MNALP) provided mining and heavy civil services to Syncrude (Operated by Suncor) on the Aurora site, located approximately 80km North of Fort McMurray, Alberta.  MNALP completed large overburden removal and reclamation materials movement scopes, the construction of an internal drains and filter sand project for major dam infrastructure and other complementary mine support work.   

We are proud that our team completed these varying scopes while meeting our most important goal of “Everyone Gets Home Safe.”


Vale, Voisey’s Bay Mine

Vale’s Voisey’s Bay Mine and Concentrator operations are located on the north coast of Labrador. Voisey's Bay has been producing nickel-copper-cobalt from an open-pit operation since 2005. The future of Voisey’s Bay involves the transition from open-pit to underground with the development of two underground mines—Reid Brook and Eastern Deeps—extending the life of Vale's Labrador Operations well into the future. Vale’s operations in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador are an integrated mining, milling, and processing operation; nickel concentrate produced at Voisey's Bay is processed at Vale's Long Harbour hydrometallurgical facility in Newfoundland, one of the world's lowest emission nickel processing plants. Vale is a proud local operator in Newfoundland and Labrador and enjoys a long and collaborative relationship with its Aboriginal/Indigenous partners, Innu Nation & Nunatsiavut Government, on whose traditional lands the Voisey's Bay Complex is located.
