Irwin's Project Examples

Screenshot 2024-02-21 at 11.07.56 AM

The picture on the left shows a large boulder that is stuck in the reclaim feeder. We took a rock drilling bit that‘s 1' ½ in diameter and drilled multiple holes through the rock. Then, we filled those with an expansive demolition grout. Within 12hrs, the boulder fractured and could be removed with just walking the conveyor. This process saves time on not daylighting the feeder to remove the rock from above and not shutting down the secondary feeders to the sag mill. This job can be completed within 24 hrs using this method.




These pictures show shovel undecking andundercarriage replacement jobs at the Gibraltar mine. Komatsu shovel and a Bucyrus shovel are pictured. With 30 days of scope, we cleaned all components of the shovel so that they could be removed and installed with ease for the rebuild. Cleaners also identified cracks and issues with the shovels for the customer/client so that they could get addressed atthe time of rebuild. We also provided spark watch and hole watch for the customer.
