Supporting the Team
The Haile team rallied behind Mine Process Maintenance worker, Britt Wilson in September 2018. Wilson donated his kidney to his cousin and the surgery required Britt to be out of work for six to eight weeks. To show their support, the Haile team and the local community joined together and hosted several fundraisers for Wilson and his family. Together, they raised more than $5,000.
2018 Family Day – Goodwill Plantation
We like to have fun too! In 2018, OceanaGold’s Haile Operation hosted a Family Day to celebrate our employees and thank them for their hard work. The day was filled with fun activities, food and fellowship for all team members and their families. Children enjoyed pumpkin painting, outdoor games, face painting, balloon art, hayrides, “mining for gold,” and much more. Nearly 200 people enjoyed spending the day with the ones they love. Thank you again to all of our exceptional employees for their efforts and for contributing to a safe and enjoyable workplace!
The event was at the Goodwill Plantation, located along the Wateree River Heritage Reserve in South Carolina. The heritage reserve includes land donated to the state of South Carolina as part of Haile’s initial permitting process to begin operations in 2016.
