At the inaugural Imperial Oil Western Canada Annual Safety Forum in Fort McMurray, K2 (KMC Mining – Peter Kiewit Joint Venture) was recognized with an award for Safety Leadership on the Kearl Project. The award was presented to K2 leadership team by Mr. Bob Delaney, Project Executive – Major Projects and Mr. Chris Allard, Senior Project Manager for Imperial Oil/ExxonMobil.

The award is a soap stone carving of an eagle that represents leadership in the aboriginal culture. The award was presented to the company that demonstrated strong leadership traits toward Safety and the Environment.  They specifically recognized K2 for our innovation pertaining to our Environmental Stewardship program, our efforts in the implementation of the Heavy Haul/Light Vehicle isolation program and most importantly, setting the site standard for the creation, development, and execution of the Observation/Intervention program.

It should be noted that K2 Mining was chosen from all current major projects for Imperial Oil in Western Canada. During the acceptance of the award K2 received a standing ovation for their efforts.
