National Trophy for Metal Mines



Glencore, Nickel Rim South

Nickel Rim South Mine (NRS) is a 1.3Mtpy underground hard rock mine, located within the City of Greater Sudbury, Ontario.  Operating at depths between 1,100-1,720 metres below surface, NRS has been producing nickel and copper ore streams since 2010 (including minor amounts of cobalt, gold, silver, platinum and palladium) through the application of transverse blasthole mining methods (bulk mining).  The current life of mine is Q1 2024 and the site employs approximately 280 direct employees.  NRS has demonstrated its continued commitment to operational safety excellence across all levels of the organization and credits it’s success due to the collaboration, engagement and openness of its workforce, JHSC committee, supervision and management in achieving a common goal – Safe Work.  As a testament to its success, NRS has received four John T Ryan Safety Trophies (Regional Ontario Metal Mine) in 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2021.  Now the achievement of receiving the John T Ryan Safety Trophy (National Metal Mine) for 2022 serves as a pinnacle to this success.
