Provo Mining & Construction, Inc. (“Provo”) is a Utah based mining contracting company where Safety, Quality, Transparency, Environment, and Community define our services.
Provo was founded in 2019 by Roy Durr, a Professional Engineer with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and a Master Certificate in Project Management. Following a successful professional trajectory in managing the design and execution of major infrastructure projects varying in size from $50 to $450M in Canada under the Sudbury based Legend Mining Inc., Roy brought his professional direction and leadership to the western United States, where Provo Mining & Construction, Inc. is actively managing the rehabilitation and restart of the Trixie Gold Mine near Eureka, Utah, as well as the development and production expansion of the Dragon Mine near Silver City, Utah.
Under the Legend Mining banner, Roy led the successful design and sinking of 6m diameter shafts for Potash Corp to 1,123 meters, through water bearing strata to 1050m depth using innovate freezing and lining technologies to control water inflows into the shafts, a singular feat. Canadian projects completed under Roy’s leadership include shaft rehabilitation and main conveyor way stabilization for Morton Salt; the detailed design, construction and completion of the Raglan Expansion Program for Xtrata’s Nickel mine in Quebec; and the design, construction and commissioning of a mine refrigeration plant for Falconbridge’s Kidd Mine D, with a budget of $30M.
Provo operates under the values instilled by its founder, Roy Durr, and executes projects with a relentless pursuit of safety so every person returns home safely at the end of their workday or shift; instilling integrity and transparency in all actions; with utmost care and concern for safeguarding the environment and preserving its long term fitness, function and viability; and a deep sense of community with the mining and construction employees and their families as extended members of the Provo family.
