Mine Haul Roads represent a large capital investment and as such, they should be looked after in a manner that preserves that investment.
Yes, dust control is absolutely essential on Mine Haul roads in terms of safety and work cycle efficiency—but Dust Control should not come with the cost of deteriorating the roads.
An Intelligent and Sustainable Approach This is our approach. We provide a solution that will improve and protect the Mine Haul Roads AND provide effective long term dust control.
At Soil & Dust Solutions our approach is different. We do not just sell a product we provide specifically engineered solutions that deliver significant value to our clients. There are many products that claim to reduce dust – but one must also look at what damage they may cause to the road surface in the process. We look at this differently — there are many products that can be put on a road surface to prevent dust — BUT what else do they do?
Consider the following — whatever is put on a Mine Haul Roads surface, affects the following :
- Drivers visibility
- Drivers safety
- Road surface protection or degradation
- Vehicle increased or reduced maintenance ( if product sticks to a vehicle this increases maintenance )
- Increased or decreased tyre wear
- Increased or decreased work cycle efficiency
- Environmental impact CO2 emissions
- Water consumption
- Diesel usage
- Operational costs
- Road Maintenance
All of the above are affected by “what is placed on the road “. Our flagship product EBS Engineered Base Soil Stabilizer — will provide a dust-free surface — HOWEVER, it will also greatly improve the Mine Haul road.
What are the results of a significantly improved Mine Haul road? — there are many that can be quantified. We have assisted many clients in reducing the maintenance cost of Haul Roads by hundreds of millions of USD – we can help you too.
