Arizona State Legislature approves $4M in ongoing yearly Funding for School of Mining and Mineral Resources

The funding is geared to building a highly educated workforce prepared to meet some of the world’s most pressing technological needs around mineral resources.

About 45,000 jobs in Arizona are connected to mining in some way. Further, many top industries, such as aerospace, manufacturing, technology, health care and renewable energy rely on Arizona’s minerals, particularly copper. Copper is used everywhere, from electronics and electric vehicles to building materials, and it is constantly in high demand worldwide. That makes Arizona, which produces three-fourths of the nation’s copper and is the sixth-largest producer in the world, a key player in the global economy.

Epiroc wins large Mining Equipment Order in China


Epiroc has won a large order for mining equipment and service from Dazhong Mining Co. Ltd. in China. The machines will be used to expand two of its underground iron ore mines in the most safe and productive manner possible.

Dazhong Mining has ordered a variety of rigs for face drilling, production and rock reinforcement for use at the Zhouyoufang and Zhongxinji mines in the Anhui Province. The order is valued at about MSEK 200 and was booked in the third quarter 2021. In addition to the equipment, the order includes on-site service and training including sophisticated simulators, which provide a safe and realistic environment to enhance the skills of machine operators.

Dazhong Mining is rated as a national Green Mine Enterprise, meaning it is recognized for its sustainable way of mining. The company also purchased a large number of machines from Epiroc in 2020.

“Epiroc is happy to team up again with Dazhong Mining so it can expand its operations further while strengthening safety, sustainability and productivity,” says Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO. 

“Our operations have truly become more safe, environmentally friendly and efficient through Epiroc’s equipment and service,” says the Head of Dazhong Mining. “We are happy that this model will continue to be applied to the expansion of two mines. We have a good long-term partnership with Epiroc as this supports us with a high-level technical resource which promotes the sustainable development of the mining industry.”

The machines ordered include Boomer face drilling rigs, Simba production drilling rigs, and Boltec and Cabletec rock reinforcement rigs. The machines will be equipped with Epiroc’s telematics system, which allows for intelligent monitoring of machine performance and productivity in real-time, and most of the units will have Epiroc’s Rig Control System, RCS, installed, which makes them ready for automation and remote control. The equipment will be delivered in 2021 and 2022.

About Epiroc

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

28. October 2021 (1940 Clicks)

Ensuring social acceptance for mining projects, and especially when it comes to settling ponds for mine tailings, is a huge challenge. Modern geomonitoring integrates data obtained from orbiting satellites, from overflying aircraft and from the surface of the ground, as well as from below it, to create a transparent and space and time-referenced process understanding. Geomonitoring technology is therefore an important tool for risk management and communication over the course of the mining lifecycle.
