Rail-Veyor Technologies Global has announced that the company’s TrulyAutonomous haulage system operating at the Agnico Eagle Mines Goldex mine in Val d’Or, Que., has hauled over 10 million tonnes of ore since installation and commissioning was completed in 2018.

Agnico Eagle Mines announced in July 2022 that 1 million ounces of gold has been processed from the Goldex mine since 2013.

Initially designed with a haul capacity of 6,000 t/d, the Railveyor system has consistently exceeded that number, according to Rail-Veyor and Agnico. The company also claims that the fully electric system helps reduce potential greenhouse gas emissions, especially when compared to traditional desire truck haulage solutions. 

“Since 2018, the implementation of the Railveyor system at Goldex has had a positive impact on our operations. This innovative project has had a unifying effect among our teams because all departments were able to participate in it. It also allowed us to raise the bar on our production, and it helped us achieve our environmental and health and safety goals,” said Christian Lessard, maintenance superintendent Agnico’s Goldex mine.
