GMSG-logoJohannesburg – RAMJACK Technology Solutions is pleased to announce their participation in an important panel at the upcoming SAIMM Forum organized by the Global Mining & Standards Group.

RAMJACK’s Kevin Ramsay will participate in the panel and will discuss the challenges of communications infrastructure in underground mining environments.  This is a timely discussion for all South African mine operators as recent changes to legislation have underscored the importance of underground communications in regards to both safety and regulatory compliance.

Mr. Ramsay will bring a unique perspective to the discussion as RAMJACK is the exclusive Sub-Saharan distributor for the real-time underground production and safety systems produced by Canadian-based Newtrax Technologies.  These revolutionary wireless communication systems are bringing a new level of safety, efficiency and productivity to South African mining operations.  The two companies have recently completed a successful deployment at the Koffiefontein mine in the Free State and are in the process of rolling out a second system for Petra Diamonds at their Finsch Mine.

The GMSG-SAIMM Forum will take place on February 15th and 16th at Emperor’s Palace, Johannesburg and will cover two full days of information about current global collaborative projects in mining technology.  It will be of interest to personnel involved in mine, maintenance and operations planning and technology. For more information, please consult the event website: http://gmggroup.org/event/.  To register please contact Heather Ednie – [email protected]  Registration is free, but bookings are essential.
