This Thursday, the Industrial Minerals Association for Northern Nevada will award EP Minerals the IMA Safety Award for 2014 Safety Performance at our Lovelock Mine and also for the Clark Plant. Each of those operations worked over 200,000 employee hours without a MSHA reportable injury or fatality during 2014. This makes EP Minerals one of the few operations among the IMA North America to receive this award, according to Darrell Smith, executive vice president of the IMA.

“We are vigilant about safety every day throughout our company,” said President/CEO Gregg Jones. “Safety is one of our core fundamentals and we’re committed to keeping our employees safe and running our plants and mines safely. We are very pleased to receive this IMA award,” added Jones.

In its recognition program for excellence in worker safety, the IMA North American strives to ensure that miners leave the workplace each and every day as injury free as they entered. The IMA believes that mining companies that achieve excellence in the control of miner injuries deserve recognition for their outstanding safety effort. This achievement recognition program seeks to provide that recognition, and motivate others to enhance their own safety performance.
