        Over the past year, mining executives have received one message, loud and clear: markets will no longer tolerate production at any cost, according to a report by Deloitte. During the height of the mining boom, record-breaking commodity prices notionally supported the development of marginal high-cost, low-productivity mineral deposits. As commodity prices dropped, companies responded Author: Vicky Sidler. The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is the national organization of the Canadian mining industry. We represent companies involved in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. Our member companies account for most of Canada’s output of metals and minerals.

        Abstract Labor productivity in mining is often measured by output per mining company employee over a given time period such as a year, where output typically is the content of the main metal product contained in the ore. The necessary data for this measure are readily available, an important advantage, but it does suffer from a number of known by: 8. what determines productivity? (whereas it had changed little in the preceding decade). Materials productivity increased by more than half. Capital productivity in-creased as well. I show that most of the productivity gains were due to changes in work practices. Work practice changes reduced over-staffing and hence increased labor productivity.

The purpose of this report is to uncover the factors behind what has been, on average, a strong productivity performance from the Canadian gold mining industry over the past four decades. It is found that real price movements have had a substantial impact on productivity growth in the gold mining industry in Canada. The real price of gold declined steadily throughout the s.

Get this from a library. Productivity and labour costs in the Ontario metal mining industry. [Alan G Green; M Ann Green]. Over the past decade, both labor and multifactor productivity have fallen in copper, iron ore, coal, and many other mining operations, causing production costs to rise.

This decline, following years of rising productivity, has led many to conclude that new technology can no longer offset the adverse effects of resource by: PRODUCTIVITY AND LABOUR COSTS IN THE ONTARIO METAL MINING INDUSTRY Alan G.

The labour cost of producing a unit of output in Ontario increased by 69 per cent over the last 13 years, while comparable costs in the United States increased by only 28 per cent.

The recent surge in labor productivity shown in Fig. 2 is not merely an artifact of measuring labor productivity in terms of copper output per mining company employee. Over the past several decades and particularly during the s, it is true that mining companies in Chile, as elsewhere, outsourced a variety of activities that their own employees once by:   One of the aims of productivity measurement is to assess the performance of various sectors of the economy with respect to their use of scarce inputs.

Higher salaries enticed workers from other sectors to work in remote locations, but the subsequent war for talent escalated labor costs, and consequently labor productivity fell. The survey participants attributed the fall in.
