RCT to supply autonomous technology to Tomingley gold mine

Published by
Global Mining Review,


RCT has entered into a project with Alkane Resources to commission autonomous technology at its Tomingley gold operations in New South Wales.

The work involves installing and commissioning ControlMaster® Guidance Automation on two Caterpillar R2900G LHDs to operate at the company’s underground gold operation at Tomingley, just south of Dubbo.

RCT will also supply a Tele Cabin including operator chair, LCD monitors and laser guard containment control with the option to operate from the mine’s surface via the ControlMaster® Fibre Optic Control Station (FOCS).

Guidance Automation removes operators from machine cabs which improves safety while the technology enables faster tramming speeds and eliminates machine damage from operator errors thereby significantly reducing unplanned maintenance works.

The technology will be installed by mid-2019 with operator training to be held simultaneously.
