Title: Bauma returns with a large mining component

Abstract

The world's largest construction trade fair is also a major mining show covering equipment from excavation to product load out. This comprehensive preview of the bauma 2007 exposition (23-29 April 2007) describes construction equipment which will be displayed, concentrating on mining equipment. It includes drilling equipment; earthmoving, excavation and grading machinery; loading and hauling machines; underground mining equipment; crushing and screening equipment; conveyors; and pumps. 25 photos.

  • After a slow year for the mining industry in 1983, Alaskan officials feel that 1984 may be a major upswing. The current exploration for gold and base metals may expand the known reserves of Alaskan resources far above current levels. Coal contracts have been signed with Korea, and several other major contracts are in the work. With the new technology, mine facilities, and governmental optimism, the mining industry is expecting a good year.
  • Armstrong Coal Co. now owns three Page draglines-one now operating at the Midway Surface mine, one due to go into operation at the Equality surface mine and a third that is being rebuilt also for use there. Armstrong is banking on the economics of scale to once again prove that these older machines are still the most efficient way to move large volumes of overburden. 4 photos.
  • This is a buyers guide of mining related equipment and services. The guide is broken down into an index of these goods and services and then cross referenced to a alphabetical provider list. The provider list is worldwide in scope and provides addresses, phone numbers, and fax numbers. Goods and services contain approximately 1,350 entries with a wide scope of applications to the mineral industry.
  • Used mining machinery can greatly improve the economics of certain coal-mining projects, but the acquisition of suitable used equipment in good condition at the right time can, however, involve problems in logistics, calling for well-orchestrated project management, including inspection and purchasing skills. Worldwide connections and the ability to expedite, inspect, and make complicated shipping arrangements are prerequisite. These activities must meet production schedules if serious delays and loss in operating revenue are to be avoided. Two actual cases are described in detail.
