Areas where mobile machinery travels on the rock-based roadways generate dust. This dust becomes airborne and travels though the mine into the workings. Dust mitigation is important for safety and minimising the impact on air-quality.
As dust is a hazard to mining workers’ health, it certainly needs to be managed on priority.
Traditional methods of dust management include:
Water carts – a method that is highly inefficient and costly due to machinery maintenance costs and labour to operate and dry out quickly.
Water soluble binders – that are costly to apply, need reapplying and can become dangerously slippery when they become wet post application.
Solution: Overhead gravity feeds water suppression that runs on mine raw water and is fully automated.
