A well-known fact within the mining industry is that hauling costs can account for up to 50% of the total operating costs incurred by a surface mine. Therefore any savings generated from improved road design and management benefit the mining company directly, resulting in reduced cost per ton of material hauled. Dust emanating from these roads, as well as tailings piles, can also plague nearby communities and therefore a proper dust mitigation strategy can be an important factor for mines’ CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policies. Taking these facts into consideration, Cypher Environmental developed a strategy to design products that can enhance the engineering properties of mine haul roads, improving their stability in all weather conditions, reducing dust and maintenance requirements, with a specific focus on reducing rolling resistance.
