London, United Kingdom, 7 October 2021 – Nord Gold plc ("Nordgold" or the "Group"), the internationally diversified gold producer, is delighted to release a new film about its global corporate concept, Technical Excellence, which can be viewed at:
The implementation of TEX enables the Group to maintain its strong financial position through the standardisation of key production processes, the training of employees to adopt industry best practices and the utilisation of advanced digital technologies.
The film showcases the great progress Nordgold has made since 2019 in increasing the efficiency of geological modelling and mining planning within the Group, and in particular at its Suzdal mine in Kazakhstan, by implementing world-class digital technologies and increasing the technical competency of its employees. This project became the starting point for TEX as it enabled the Group to achieve industry-leading results.
The initial success of the TEX project proved its potential and Nordgold has therefore since rolled out this new Global Corporate Concept to other production processes. Currently, TEX consists of an entire ecosystem within the Group that underpins 13 projects. By the end of 2023, 80% of Nordgold’s personnel will have participated the TEX projects.
TEX is crucial for Nordgold’s current strong performance and future results as it underpins efficiency and cost reduction through innovation and digitalisation within the Group. Based on the TEX foundation, Nordgold’s strategy is to become an innovator and market leader in areas such as exploration, mine construction, processing and mining automation where we can secure a genuine competitive advantage.
