MiningNews: Simulated Underground Mine Training Gains International Attention

MiningNews.net reports that the Cut, a simulated underground training mine in Perth, is attracting attention from mining specialists all over the world. Training specialist Barminco is arranging several tours in the next few weeks, with visitors from as far afield as Chile.

“We’ve put a bit of time and money into setting this up,” Barminco training co-coordinator Steve Motion said. “From an induction point of view, I think it will be a pretty good idea for putting what we call green people or new people through, just to give them that feeling of what it’s like to go underground and how an underground mine works.”
