Research, Education, and Training

Education and training of the future workforce in the region is the key to the success of any mining project.  Marathon’s senior management team has worked closely with the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) to employ MUN students and graduates since 2010.

The current project schedule anticipates construction activities commencing in 2021, with mine operations commencing in 2023.  As the Project moves forward towards development, Marathon will assess the future needs of our proposed Project and work with MUN as well as local community schools and training institutions to ensure a local, educated, and well-trained workforce is ready to meet the challenges of developing and operating a world class gold mine in central Newfoundland.
