What does it mean to be a true partner? When Jaguar Mining Inc. began to position itself as a prominent player in the burgeoning South American gold mining sector, it needed a strong drilling partner by its side. Major Drilling’s key values—quality, safety and results—align with Jaguar’s as it transforms itself into a leading gold miner in South America.
In May 2017, Major Drilling began underground drilling operations at Jaguar’s Pilar and Turmalina Mines. The Jaguar team trusted Major Drilling to be the capable, experienced drilling firm it needed. By February 2020, Jaguar reported high-grade gold intercepts in an area of Brazil that is a prolific gold-producing belt.
“Exploration drilling at Pilar will target extending our consistent production zones. Major Drilling’s commitment to safety makes it possible for the Jaguar team’s critical explorations to yield the best chances for a positive result,” Vern Baker, CEO of Jaguar Mining Inc., said.
