Surface mining can increase production without the need for permanent infrastructure enabling rapid expansion past existing primary crusher capacity.
Continuous surface mining enables rapid start up and reduced times for developing new deposits making it ideal for our mining operations.
Surface mining provides a low cost alternative to drill and blast providing access to new deposits that were previously unviable.
Surface miners perform cutting, crushing and in some cases loading in a single pass making it more effective than conventional methods.
The consistent material produced by surface mining eliminates the need for primary crushers, large loaders and large haul trucks. End material is transportable by regular highway trucks or conveyors.
Strict environmental regulations for noise and dust emissions make surface mining attractive when compared to conventional drilling and blasting methods.
