GCM carried out a trial of a surface miner, in the Westbrooke Estate subdivision in the Western region of Melbourne in August 2016.
The scope included:
• Mobilisation of a Wirtgen 2500 surface miner;
• Carrying out 21 days of milling in a variety of applications including rock excavation, trenching and land clearing to demonstrate the features and benefits of Wirtgen surface miners; and,
• The collection of production and GET consumption data on the local rock type/s.
The general consensus was that the trial was a resounding success and two further subdivision have subsequently been completed.
