We regret to share news of the passing of TNDC employee Randy Lavand, who sadly passed from a non-work related incident at our Newcrest Red Chris Mine jobsite over the weekend.
Randy joined TNDC in August as an experienced heavy equipment operator and quickly became part of the family. He provided mentorship and support to our crew daily. Randy was well liked and respected by everyone he worked with and his presence onsite will be deeply missed.
TNDC appreciates the leadership, guidance and support that Newcrest Red Chris management have been providing onsite during this very difficult and unprecedented time. We will continue to work with them to support our team in dealing with this loss.
On behalf of TNDC Management, our employees at site and the Tahltan Nation, our thoughts and prayers are with Randy’s family.
