Sandvik Mining and Construction recently entered into an agreement with BHP Billiton for the conceptual design of a mechanical cutting system for use at BHP Billiton’s Jansen project. The project, located near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, will employ Sandvik Borer Miners designed and developed under this agreement. The Sandvik Borer Miners will incorporate the latest technology available for enhancement of automation, production, life cycle costs and safety. Sandvik Borer Miners are used around the world for mining potash and trona and are well known for their high production rates and low life cycle costs.
