RCT to provide autonomous loaders at Osborne mine

Published by , Assistant Editor
Global Mining Review,

Automation specialist RCT has entered into a project with Chinova Resources to install and commission autonomous technology at its Osborne mine in Queensland.

The project involves RCT installing its ControlMaster® Guidance Automation packages on two CAT 2900 loaders to operate at the copper-gold underground mine.

RCT will also provide an underground Teleremote Cabin complete with a Laser Guard Containment Unit and analogue communications as well as a Fibre Optic Control Station (FOCS) located on the mine’s surface.

ControlMaster® Guidance offers consistent machine operation and cycle times by reducing unplanned machine downtime from operator errors and improved safety for operators who can manage the machines from remote locations.

RCT’s Brisbane and Mount Isa branches carried out installation and commissioning works in mid-2019 and will deliver operator and maintenance training to site personnel.
