US: Minetec has won a $1.8 million contract with RUC Cementation Mining Contractors to provide underground tracking technologies for a WA mine.

The high precision tracking, visualisation, task management, and proximity detection systems will enhance safety and productivity in underground mines.

The solution is enabled by WASP, an underground GPS and wireless management system and will also use the company’s sub-metre tracking and task management software SMARTS.

The contract reinforces Minetec’s aim of targeting underground hard-rock gold, copper and diamond mines.
