Productivity of a gold mine in Saudi Arabia by M.S.M. Aljuhani Synopsis In this paper, one of the human factors that affect productivity in an underground gold mine in Saudi Arabia was investigated and analysed for the purpose of improving productivity. The human factor that was investigated is labour utilization and labour produc-tivity.Figure 4 shows the average recovered gold grade for South African mines from 2004 to 2013. The steady decline in gold grades is evident in Figure 4. The graph shows a decrease from 5.15 g t in 2005 to 2.91 g t in 2013. This combination of declining resource grades, declining gold price, and increasing cost - the key value drivers - severely.
