GMSG has successfully published the first two parts of its Underground Mine Communications Infrastructure Guideline: Positioning and Needs Analysis, and Scenarios and Applications. The guideline is being developed by the Underground Mining Working Group’s Communications Infrastructure sub-committee. It will provide a high-level view of the processes needed by mine owners and operators to meet planning and design requirements when creating or replacing underground mine communications infrastructure.
The Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Group (GMSG) and the Canadian Mining Innovation Council (CMIC) are pleased to announce the publication of the Recommended Practices for Battery Electric Vehicles in Underground Mining Guideline. This document is meant to serve as a blueprint for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to move forward in research and development, and references existing standards and guidelines related to battery electric vehicles (BEVs). Before this publication, there were no documents specifically related to BEVs in an underground mining environment.
The Underground Communications Infrastructure Guideline Parts 1 & 2 and the Recommended Practices for Battery Electric Vehicles in Underground Mining Guideline are available for download in the GMSG library. For more info on GMSG’s guidelines work, please visit www.globalminingstandards.org
