Peru – Construction of Ventilation Ducts
Austmine, METS Ignited and Linkminers invite you to apply for the challenge 'Construction of Ventilation Ducts.' This supply opportunity is part of the Virtual Supplier Development Program - Peru.
Several ventilation ducts or columns have to be built on-site. The construction of these is one of the main limiting factors for extracting gold veins or ore deposits. This can have significant impacts on mine design, efficiency and safety.
A solution is required to build these ventilation ducts in a low quality rock with low resistance. The ideal technological solution will allow the construction of ventilation ducts in an adequate timeframe, while not compromising security and the support of the duct.
This is an underground operation where gold extraction is undertaken from narrow veins using the cut and fill method.
To submit a solution, complete the challenge application form here.
Challenge submissions close on Monday 14th September at 5pm AWST / 7pm AEST
Solutions will be shortlisted and successful companies will be notified to attend a challenge Q&A session with the operations on the 22nd or 23rd September. METS companies will pitch their solutions directly to the mining company across the 29th September – 30th October.
For any questions contact Giancarlo Tosti-Croce, Leader International Markets, METS Ignited at email@example.com.
