           . . . Inco is still much more advanced than other
           mining companies. He says that the LKAB mine in Sweden
           is the closest rival. He predicts that, by 2008, Inco
           can reach a new productivity plateau, doubling the
           current mining productivity from 3,350 tonnes to 6,350
           tonnes per person per year. Another aim is to triple
           the mine cycle rate (the time to drill, blast and muck
           a round) from one cycle to three complete cycles per 24
           hours.
