He also outlines their strategy in expanding into the mining EV market by introducing Bortana EV and how it integrates into Safescapes’ criteria for mining safety and efficiency.
Safescape Laddertube is a state-of-the-art escapeway system designed specifically for use in underground mines. A fully-enclosed, durable polyethylene product, Laddertube is not impacted by water, salt or other mineral deposits. It requires minimal upkeep, fits comfortably within a 1.1m/42” raisebore and provides for the ultimate in user safety.
Edge Protector (EP)
A system for improved edge protection in open pit mines. The structure is designed to allow open pit haul roads to be narrower while retaining the same or better safety characteristics. The EP consists of a series of filled polyethylene shells which secure together in a row along the edge of an open pit road. The created wall acts to support a bund of loose rock giving a vertical face. Edge Protector is designed to prevent truck’s tyres from rolling up the bund.
A battery-electric vehicle designed to handle the aggressive operating environment of underground mines. Designed and developed in Australia by Safescape, the Bortana EV tackles safety and health concerns in mining head on through zero emissions, reduced heat and lower maintenance.

MN 48. Process Automation Manufactures - Modern Mine & Measurements Systems
The large modern mine is automated, and the maintenance staff are reduced, which means that the modern plant requires a closer cooperation between man and machine. Modern plants are also closely monitored off-site and in real-time for efficiency, metal accounting, and preventative maintenance.
The technology already exists where a ‘war room ‘ in a central location can monitor all of their operations and warn the site of impending issues such as bearings running hot or the mill being overloaded, etc. The auditing of plants is a requirement to protect the shareholders investment, and you can only manage what you measure.
It is thus critical that the weighing instruments such as the conveyor belt scales are calibrated and maintained to a certain standard and at a level required by current acceptable corporate governance practices relating to auditability and transparency of metal accounting from rockface to product. Marcel Barnard, General Manager & Sales for Process Automation joins Mining NOW to outline where Process Automation comes in?
