Record tonnages achieved (Tritton Mine Site case study)

Familiar with RCT systems, which have successfully been used throughout the mine, the site chose to implement additional RCT Smart Technology to solve the issue at hand.

“We are very happy with the improvements being made in tonnages by using RCT’s solution, with between 12,000 and 15,000 tonnes extra ‘bogging’ being achieved over shift change in a typical month, that sees around 110,000 tonnes a month in total production.”

Increasing mine safety and productivity in China

By utilising RCT’s ControlMaster® Teleremote system at White Mountain, productivity increased substantially with the site achieving a record of nearly 6,300 buckets in one month, which is equivalent to more than 60,000 tonnes of ore.

“White Mountain was the first Chinese mine to embrace the available hardware and technology and integrate it into the primary ore extraction tool. The perceived benefits in productivity were estimated between 25-30 per cent, meaning the system would pay for itself in less than six months.”
– Warren Uyen, White Mountain General Manager
