General 2015-05-10Narwapahar Mine is the first fully mechanized mine operating since April 1995. This is a trackless mine with a decline access to underground and ramp accesses to the stopes. This permits use of large diesel powered underground equipment resulting in high productivity, eliminating fatigue of workmen and providing a good working environment. Diesel traction and Electro-hydraulic Drill Jumbos are used for drilling. The capability to drill long and parallel holes has improved drilling productivity. The mucking of blasted ore and waste is carried out by diesel powered Load Haul Dump Loaders and transported by Low Profile Dump Trucks. To be able to utilize the high productive capacities of these machines, adequate back-up in terms of service vehicles such as passenger carriers, explosive vans, service and carriage trucks have been deployed.
