Blasting entails all of the related equipment required to blast hard rock including drilling equipment/rigs and consumables such as drill bits, explosives and all other related components to detonate a charge.
Bulk Handling Equipment
This category is centered on the manufacturing of equipment used for the handling both dry and saturated materials including stationary machinery such as conveyor belts to mobile equipment such as loaders.
Metal Fabrication entails a manufacturer that takes raw flat steel and based on engineering drawings manufactures it into components necessary for building mines and all related infrastructure.
Includes all of the services required to ensure mining is conducted in an environmentally sound and responsible way as not to impact current or future ecosystems.
Health and Safety
All personnel protective equipment, training and detection systems necessary to ensure the employees are held out of harm's way in all mining applications including equipment operators and miners.
Fixed Mining Equipment
This category includes equipment necessary for optimum mine production that is a permanent fixture within the mine site including rock breakers, crushers, mineral processing equipment and conveying systems.
Automation / Software
Smart technology that optimizes mine production and mineral processing through real-time information available to surface including ventilation on demand, telerobotic, communication systems, autonomous vehicle operation, personnel, and equipment monitoring.
All components required to ensure mine personnel have the ventilation necessary for a safe and productive working environment including ventilation on demand systems, air quality monitoring, chillers, fans, and ductwork.
Mobile Mining Equipment
All self-propelled equipment either on wheels or tracks that can be moved throughout the mine site either surface or underground including jumbo drills, scoops, scissor lifts, bolters, cement trucks, loaders, and personnel movers.
Encompasses all of the support services necessary to properly engineer a mine site and mineral processing facilities including engineering, procurement, construction, and management firms.
Includes firms that specialize in constructing/developing mines and all related infrastructure through a turnkey approach or by being contracted to undertake specific developments from shaft sinking, head frame constructing, raise boring and drift development.
Battery Electric Vehicles
One of the most innovative and environmental responsible changes to underground mining is the introduction of battery-powered underground equipment. SAMSSA members lead the development of electrification and are pioneers in the industry. Removing the diesel particulates, reducing heat and noise has revolutionized the mining industry.
