Digital Safety and Productivity for Underground Hard Rock Mines
Gold Fields’ Granny Smith Mine is now able to save 20 minutes per underground emergency evacuation thanks to the Newtrax digitial evacuation notification system. The mine can now evacuate their personnal quicker and safer, while accounting for each individual to make sure they come home safely to their families everyday..
Agnico Eagle’s Goldex underground mine has been using Newtrax MET solutions for over two years to increase predictive maintenance and increase productivity. MET systems are used to collect massive amounts of data, and having the capability to access the data empowers the workers to make better decisions
