Surface Mining Animation: Vermeer T1655 terrain leveller strip mining/bulk excavation methodology

UEA Civil & Mining uses Vermeer surface mining machines for the selective mining of multiple, varying seam thickness for better grade control and increased delivery of high grade ore with minimal dilution. The consistent material produced by surface mining eliminates the need for primary crushers, large loaders and large haul trucks. End material is transportable by regular highway trucks or conveyors. The patented tilt attachment tilts 5 degrees in either direction allowing for cutting to grade and smooth pit floors. This attachment can also cut square corners and vertical walls allowing you to get in and extract material close to the high wall.
