It is common for some of the mines in South Africa to implement an independent, do-it-yourself program for dust control to avoid perceived risks around bringing in new service providers unfamiliar with their operations, or repeating prior experiences with poor performing suppliers.
Specially formulated dust control products, such as polymeric binders or lignosulphonates, are widely recognised to be highly effective at suppressing dust on mine haul roads.
At Dust-A-Side Coal, one of our core values is caring and this includes caring for the people and the places we work in. Our philosophy is to give back to local communities wherever we can, not only in areas where we operate, but throughout South Africa.
A common and frustrating challenge for underground miners to deal with is ensuring that wheel generated dust from underground haul roads is kept under control for the health and safety of the workforce.
