A recent demonstration at First Quantum Minerals Ltd’s Trident mine near Kalumbila, Zambia, was a success with many members in attendance.
SHERP capabilities were demonstrated to major mining companies:
- FQML – Kansanshi Mine;
- FQML – Trident MineBarrick – Lumwana Mine;
- Barrick – Lumwana mine.
Attendees included representatives from a variety of industries:
- Emergency Response Team (ERT);
- Geological exploration;
The audience couldn’t believe that one utility task vehicle could do this and saw the potential of SHERP for their needs. One of the main challenges SHERP UTV can solve is access to hard-to-reach areas, especially during the rainy season, which is especially true for exploration.
We are grateful to our Tata Motors dealer in Zambia for organizing the event. And thank you also to Mr. Daniel Vorster for helping us with the demonstration.
