Existing Contracts

 

Decline barrel development Mototolo Joint Venture

Mechanised Mining Solutions is responsible for all the main development at Borwa and Lebowa shafts. Trackless equipment allocated by Mototolo consists of 1 by 281 low profile drill rig as well as 2 loaders per shaft. Mechanised Mining Solutions employs 88 people to perform this task. The 1st and 2nd stage ledging falls under their responsibility. Safety and production results are attached to this document.

The critical factor in this development contract is the non negotiable standard that at least 100m of this development must be mined from the decline barrels. To date this criteria has been met and regularly beaten. Efficiencies achieved on average are 8m per month per employee or 300 tons per employee per month.

Excavation of a boxcut and decline development for Konkola Copper Mine (Zambia)

Mechanised Mining Solutions Zambia Limited has excavated a 121000m3 boxcut and completed the slope stabilisation, drainage, re-inforcement and fibre crete. From this boxcut a portal was established and a 5 by 5.5m decline was developed in a weak shale formation. This weak formation has necessitated the installation of steel arch sets with re- inforcing and 50mm of shotcrete at 1m intervals. Equipment was procured by MMS and consists of a Bell 2606 Front End Loader a Bell TLB a Sandvik 30 tonne dump truck and a 281 Atlas Copco Drill Rig. MMS have completed this work on schedule, on budget and serious accident free.
