One Liebherr PR 776 72 t / 79 ton dozer and three PR 766 53 t / 58 ton dozers have been purchased by Argonaut Gold for the Magino mine project in Canada. Partnering with Liebherr-Canada ensures that Argonaut Gold receives expert technical knowledge and experience to maximise the performance of the dozers through the long term.
For the Magino project, Argonaut Gold has put its trust in the Liebherr dozers, PR 776 and PR 766. Liebherr-Canada, as a part of the product segment Mining of the Liebherr Group, is confident the PR 776 and PR 766 will deliver class leading performance and productivity throughout the product life cycle. They have proven fuel economy, safety, operator comfort, and performance.
“Argonaut Gold is a capable, patient, yet highly dynamic business. We have been watching Argonaut’s vision turn into reality with a great deal of enthusiasm. When the opportunity arose to work with Argonaut Gold on the Magino project, it was quickly and unanimously agreed they were a strategic partner for Liebherr-Canada. We are thrilled to be providing our exceptional Dozer product and our world class service to this transformational project and cannot wait to see the tracks hit the ground.” said Tom Juric, Divisional Director, Mining for Liebherr Canada.
The Magino mine property is a past producing underground gold mine located 40 kilometres northeast of Wawa, Ontario, approximately 14 kilometres southeast of the town of Dubreuilville. "Magino is truly a valuable and strategic asset. By moving Magino forward, we are executing on our vision to transform Argonaut from a junior, relatively high-cost producer with short mine lives to an intermediate, lower-cost producer with long mine lives," said Pete Dougherty, President & CEO of Argonaut Gold.
Argonaut Gold is a Canadian gold company engaged in exploration, mine development and production. Its primary assets are the El Castillo, San Agustin, and La Colorada mines located in Mexico and the production stage Florida Canyon mine in Nevada, United States.
