Midas Gold’s remote, off-grid mining exploration camp requires a reliable power source for the staff and essential equipment onsite, but the company was fed up with the cost and emissions of diesel generators. Midas Gold settled on an increasingly common solution: a solar photovoltaic array with highly automated propane generator support that slashes emissions without sacrificing peak power capacity. A $169,000 initial investment yields a 27 percent dividend, a two-year payback, and nearly $3 million in lifetime diesel fuel savings. But perhaps just as important, Midas Gold can tout the camp’s choice of safe, low-emission sources of power as it enters the environmental review process to permit a world-class gold mine.
