Miniveyor Africa, Rako’s JV partner in South Africa, has received a massive boost in its activities to establish itself on the African continent in the form of 4 substantial orders from the mining sector following its launch in October 2007.
Two of the orders are from platinum mining giant Anglo Platinum (Angloplat) and two from copper mines in Mauritania.
In the case of Angloplat, Miniveyor is being used to clear spillages and in the clean-up of mud rushes. At Bleksop mine Miniveyor is being deployed to clear rocks that have fallen from the permanent conveyor belts on their way to the surface.
