Sandvik Fleet Ready for Work at Caribou

Part of the Caribou mine’s new $20 million Sandvik underground fleet has arrived at
the mine and are currently being readied for work, with more to come.
Trevali Mining Corp. said it has received delivery of part of its new Sandvik underground mining fleet for the Caribou zinc mine in the Bathurst Mining Camp of northeastern New Brunswick. Early-arriving components of the new fleet — haul trucks and loaders — are currently being transitioned into operations. Trevali said the new fleet represents an approximate C$20 million investment through a partnership with Sandvik Mining that will supply and maintain a full fleet of mining equipment. The fleet acquisition is part of a site-wide optimization initiative. Three loaders and four TH540 trucks have arrived at Caribou to date, and additional items of the new fleet are scheduled to be delivered over the next several weeks. The project, according to the company, is ahead of schedule for full transition of mining activities by the end of the second quarter of 2017.
