“We are proud to add this revolutionary product line to RAMJACK’s comprehensive mine technology portfolio,” said Mike Jackson, Co-founder of RAMJACK. “It is a great accomplishment to be able to bring this valuable technology to the mining industry in Sub-Saharan Africa.”

MineTrax is a patented, ultra-low powered networking platform for underground mines that is designed to extend existing communications backbones into remote locations previously considered impossible to network. It is revolutionary technology in the mining industry that, until now, has been unavailable in Sub-Saharan Africa. The technology and related applications will improve mine safety, efficiency and profitability.

RAMJACK has already received substantial interest in the Newtrax product line, having recently demonstrated its capabilities to numerous mines in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Interest ranges from simple network extension applications to proximity detection, collision avoidance and persistent, real-time geotechnical sensor monitoring in remote locations.

“We are excited to expand our footprint to Sub-Saharan Africa,” said Alex Cervinka, CEO of Newtrax Technologies, Inc. “It’s an area of the world where the unique mining environment demands a product as versatile as MineTrax.”
