SLEDGEHAMMERS, WHEELBARROWS AND MULES HAVE BEEN REPLACED BY STATE-OF-THE ART TECHNOLOGY

Guy Dixon, President & GMGuy Dixon is President and General Manager of Kyanite Mining Corporation, which has been a family-owned and operated business since his grandfather bought the original mine out of bankruptcy in 1948.

“In the earliest days — before my time — our mining equipment consisted of sledgehammers, wheelbarrows and mules,” says Gene Dixon Jr.

Gene Dixon, FounderIn the 1940’s the company employed less than 15 people and mined approximately 300 tons of ore per month. Today, KMC’s two quarries and five processing plants employ 150 individuals -- in an around-the-clock operation that has the capacity to produce over 150,000 tons of commercial grade kyanite concentrate a year.

Like our mountains, Kyanite Mining Corporation stands strong, stable and resilient. Like the mountains, we are here to stay.
