Underground: How to improve production and operator safety
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.
