2014 VDMA MINING SUPPLEMENT | VDMA 57 VDMA mally design new plants in their own operations. The targets: lower maintenance, reduced downtimes and higher profitability. Aside from the operational side, RE also remains deeply involved in set- ting standards for the surface mining sector, in areas such as conveyor suit- ability and durability. The company has its own testing facilities, available to customers worldwide, where it can perform stand ard DIN tests as well as those of its own design, from which it can then make recommendations on the quality and suitability of specific belts. Selective Mining Lowers Costs The Australian continent offers a wealth of mineral resources that is truly unique in the world. As a raw material supplier of, for example, coal, iron ore, bauxite or nickel, Australia holds a prominent position in the world market. The economy of the fifth continent is determined to a significant extent by the success of the mining companies. The mining industry is the key driver of economic growth. Conventional mining methods involving drilling and blasting were dominant until recently; since 2007, however, one of the continent's largest iron ore producers has been banking on the innovative technol- ogy offered by the Wirtgen surface miners. The mines operated by Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) are Australia's first large-scale project that uses surface mining as the main mining method. As many as 43 Wirtgen surface miners have become vital keys to the economically ef- ficient mining of high-quality materials in FMG's iron ore mines. FMG's iron ore deposits are located in the Pilbara region in Western Australia, less than two hours' flight north of Perth. In this region, FMG holds the mining rights to an area covering 71,400 km 2 . A special hall- mark of the mines presently opened up by FMG is the flat-lying nature of the iron ore deposits. In such an environment, the advantages offered by the surface mining technology are most obvious: "Wirtgen surface miners allow high-quality products to be mined with economic efficiency even from technically chal- lenging mineral deposits," said Bernhard Schimm, manager of the Wirtgen Mining Division. In comparative studies that were performed as part of the selection process to determine the most suitable main mining method, surface mining was able to win out over all other mining methods. As many as 43 Wirtgen surface miners have become vital to economically effi- cient mining at Fortescue's iron ore mines in Australia.
