The Maintenance team is accountable for the efficient operation of all industrial equipment in the ore-processing plant that is used for, among other things, ore crushing and grinding, as well as the sequence of gold extraction processes.

“I install, repair and configure all of the plant’s control room instruments. I still think it’s the best job in the world. And it’s definitely not routine! The wide variety of complex instruments I work with keeps me at the cutting edge of technology. It’s motivating. I’ve been here since the mine opened and discovered a philosophy that facilitates discussions, respect and teamwork. Integrity and trust are two words that can be used to proudly describe working at CMM. My team is creative, flexible and dynamic. I love my work!”

Daniel Lavoie, Instrumentation and Control Technician

“My job is to make sure that everything that is electronic at the plant operates properly. Technology never stops evolving and there’s always something new to learn. That’s what motivates me. We do installs, connections, equipment configuration, and programming. CMM gives me the opportunity to progress in several areas:  at the plant, to see and understand what happens during the treatment process; in town, where we maintain environmental monitoring equipment; or in the pit, to automate water pumping. This profession has something for everyone.”

Francis Lajoie, Instrumentation and Control Technician
