OCTOBER 2018 • E&MJ 79 SUPPLIERS REPORT Valley City, a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. The development caps a series of moves that transplant- ed many corporate office personnel from Johannesburg, South Africa, starting in 2005, to the area. In July 2017, the company cut the ribbon at its Operations Center, which sited divisions previously located around the Salt Lake Valley, the company reported. The new facility now houses a manufacturing plant, distribu- tion and service center, engineering, and drilling services personnel. In May, the company began relocating the last of its administrative and corporate office per- sonnel to the facility and reportedly ex- pects all of its 350 Utah-based employ- ees and local entities to be under one roof by the end of June. CEEC Gets Newmont Sponsorship The Coalition for Energy Efficient Com- minution (CEEC) entered a sponsorship agreement with Newmont Mining Corp. Newmont's sponsorship will help the coa- lition disseminate pertinent resources on- line and host workshops. The agreement comes after a CEEC Medal was awarded in 2017 to Aidan Giblett and Steven Hart for their paper titled, Grinding Circuit Practices at Newmont. The publication documented the practical approach- es used to improve energy efficiency in grinding practices across 12 Newmont operations worldwide. MSHA Wants Miner Comments on Diesel Exhaust Exposure The Mine Safety and Health Administra- tion (MSHA) is reopening the rulemaking record for public comment and extend- ing the comment period for the agency's Request for Information on Exposure of Underground Miners to Diesel Exhaust, published on June 8, 2016 (81 FR 36826). During the previous comment period, which closed November 30, 2016, MSHA received requests from stakeholders for MSHA and NIOSH to convene a Diesel Exhaust Health Effects Partnership with the mining industry, including coal and metal and nonmet- al mines, diesel engine manufacturers, and representatives of organized labor. MSHA reopened the rulemaking re- cord until January 9, 2018. Afterward, MSHA received additional stakeholder requests to reopen the record and ex- tend the comment period again. This ex- tends the comment period for one year, until March 26, 2019. Boart Longyear expects all of its Utah-based employees to be under one roof by the end of June. (Photo: Boart Longyear)
