Australian innovators Dugless Machinery Company have designed & manufactured the patented Dugless 900 for mine site resource facilities. The concept has been 3 years in the development. Since full operation in December 2008 Dugless Machinery Company have been doing on site demonstration's for various large companies in the Pilbara region of Western Australia with resounding success and are looking beyond the boundaries of Australia. Every mine site has processing problem areas where manual handling is the only answer to these issues. This is where the Dugless 900 comes into the picture being the world's shortest remote controlled purpose built machine at only 560mm high. Manual handling can lead to unexpected work place injuries, costing the industry millions of dollars in payouts. Dugless takes out the human factor in this equation. Not only is it safe but it is also productive doing the work of at least 4 employees without shutting down the system thus making money and return on the investment is justified. The current video is only for demonstration purposes. More information and photo's can be forwarded via email if needed or contact our staff via the website.

One of the largest mining companies in Queensland, Australia, faced a major challenge. It needed to move a 3,000-ton dragline excavator from one coal mine to another, almost 100 kilometers away. ‘Walking’ there would have caused significant wear-and-tear on the machine, and not allowed the company to take advantage of scheduled rail network shutdowns required to cross critical infrastructure. Mammoet was able to provide a safe, effective solution to load, move and unload the dragline using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), ensuring the company did not lose out on productivity for this vital piece of mining equipment.

Underground mines can be challenging and dangerous environments. Miners face a lack of fresh air, poor ventilation ad potential cave-ins as they work to access ore. Mining companies work diligently to ensure the safety of these workers, but dangers still exist. In this video, we’ll discuss the best way to protect underground workers: Removing them from the environment altogether. Using technologies like Cat MineStar™ Command for underground, miners can perform loading and dumping activities while located safely away in a remote operating station. In addition to improving safety, autonomous mining also delivers productivity improvements thanks to more accurate tunnel navigation and reduced downtime due to damage from contact with drive walls. We’ll hear a success story from a customer who is using Command for underground at a copper-gold mine in Australia.

Gold Fields St Ives looked at the bottlenecks that were presented, and realised that they had to implement more technology and innovation to get more production out of their underground mine. St Ives have been working with RCT now for many years, and together, they looked at possible next-level technology opportunities – making sure people are safer and more productive. RCT’s ControlMaster® Surface Solution was commissioned, and St Ives could actually remote from surface during firing times, and people were not in harm’s way and in a safe environment. And with surface remoting, St Ives also found that at the start of the shift they did not have any downtime on their trucks, and there were stockpiles ready to go, so productivity from a trucking point-of-view was also increased immensely. With the utilization of ControlMaster® Guidance System, St Ives operation was able to achieve greater speeds, consistent high production and less damage due to technology which assists in avoiding walls and major obstacles, resulting in even more productivity. St Ives has specified that their next steps with RCT are to look at: Point-to-Point (P2P) – where the operator sits in the cabin, activates a button and then the loader will move from the stockpile into the stope; the operator will take control, load the bucket and essentially press the button again and then the loader will travel back on its own, autonomously on guidance to the stockpile. MultiMachine – have one loader operator on surface remoting two loaders underground from two different levels. With doing so, St Ives anticipate that they will see an even more efficient and safer operation for their underground mine. For more information please visit www.rct.net.au or email [email protected]

Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

Subscribe to AboutUNSW if you are a current or prospective student https://www.youtube.com/user/UNSWCommunity The 2015 Kenneth Finlay Memorial Lecture "Grand Challenges for Engineering in Mining" is presented by Professor Ismet Canbulat. This lecture is also presented as part of the UNSW Vice Chancellor's Professorial Inaugural Lecture Series. Synopsis Mining is an inherently challenging multifaceted industry with complex interactions between different disciplines - from exploration of reserves to processing of ore. At the times of high commodity prices some of those challenges were not recognised or simply ignored. Today, the challenges in mining are greater than ever before with increasing costs and decreasing commodity prices, and those challenges are becoming critical today for the survival of mining companies. There have also been many great engineering achievements in mining that made the necessary step-change in safety, productivity and sustainability. But more engineering innovations are required rapidly. This presentation will highlight those engineering challenges that will need to be solved for sustainable mining in the 21st century. About the Speaker Dr Ismet Canbulat has been Professor and Chair of Kenneth Finlay Chair of Rock Mechanics since December 2014. He has 24 years of research, consultancy, management and on-site experience in Turkey, South Africa and Australia. He has a BSc Mining Engineering, MSc and PhD degrees in Mining/Rock Engineering.

Matt Geiger discusses focused investment strategies in mining juniors and some other contrarian investments such as phosphate and sandalwood. He talks about five lenses for analyzing juniors such as the working capital relative to market cap, finding companies that are trading below their working capital and selling for pennies on the dollar, eliminating the explorers and focusing on companies that already have 'hits'. Bear markets are the authors of bull markets and Matt has the knowledge to allow us to catch the next up cycle. Matt Geiger has a diverse set of skills pertaining to early stage ventures - both in the world of natural resources and tech. He is currently General Partner of MJG Capital - a resource-focused investment partnership with 20+ LPs. He is also Cofounder/President of a venture-backed technology business with $10m in cumulative funding. Known for his exhaustive security analysis and intuitive grasp of contrarian investing, Matt is a rising star in the junior resource field. Talking points from this week’s interview – • Focused investment strategies • Bear markets are the authors of bull markets • Catching the next market up cycle • Investment in Argentina and Serbia • Conservative investment assumes 1-2 more years of low metal prices
