RCT automates mine fleet in Burkina Faso

Published by , Editor
Global Mining Review,


Autonomous solutions company RCT has executed a project with African Underground Mining Services (AUMS) at the Siou underground gold mine in Burkina Faso.

Earlier in 2020, RCT commissioned its ControlMaster® Guidance Automation technology on two of Siou’s CAT R2900G underground loaders and supplied two associated Automation Centres.

Guidance Automation enables the loaders to operate with minimal intervention by machine operators located in Automation Centres either on the surface of the mine or in a secure location in the underground mine.

The automation solution improves safety onsite by relocating mine personnel away from the mine face and reducing unplanned downtime by eliminating machine operator errors.

RCT’s African-based staff has provided comprehensive training to machine operators and will continue to provide ongoing after-sales support to AUMS.
