Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd’s Goldex mine in Val-d’or, Quebec (Canada), has seen Rail-Veyor Technologies Global Inc.’s (RVTG) materials handling system begin its operations, hauling production material for their Deep 1 project. Installation of the energy-efficient 3 km underground Rail-Veyor system began as part of Goldex's new Deep 1 project which was started up in July 2017.
According to RVTG, the Rail-Veyor system was installed to haul material at lower operational costs than other alternatives such as trucks or conveyors. As mine production has ramped up, a total of six Rail-Veyor trains are being used in a fully automated and synchronised operation.
"We're very pleased that we were able to successfully provide this safe, green, and efficient system for Agnico's Goldex Mine," said Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Rail-Veyor, Frank Ward.
"Now that this industry-leading technology is operational and hauling the Deep 1 production material, Agnico Eagle will continue to benefit with every load."
