Underground Load and Haul School

12-13 June 2013 | Orion Hotel & Conference Centre, Rustenburg

As part of the SAIMM philosophy, schools are used to advance the knowledge of the younger members of the SAIMM. Underground loading and hauling is a fundamental aspect of the mining cycle and hasn't been covered in a number of years.

This school is a 'back to basic' course for underground loading and hauling. Day one will review equipment selection criteria for a range of loading and hauling equipment.

Day two will present the practical application and best practices as applied to the load and haul production cycle.
