Osbourne Mine has recently commissioned a new Automation System for loaders

Chinova Resources Osbourne Mine has recently completed an agreement commission and install autonomous technology.

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

An underground Teleremote Cabin complete with a Laser Guard Containment Unit will also be installed as part of the project. A Fibre Optic Control Station (FOCS) will be located on the mine’s surface.

The new Osbourne Mine Guidance System will offer 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.

The installation and commissioning works were conducted in mid-2019.
