In November 2019, Drivetrain delivered two brand-new UT99 underground utility vehicles to the Darlot Gold Mine in Western Australia. Red 5’s 100% owned Darlot Mine is located approximately 900km north-east of Perth in the prolific Eastern Goldfields region. The mine has a long production history, celebrating its 30-year anniversary of continuous gold production last year.
Drivetrain’s Business Development Manager and Technical Manager were both on site to commission the new ‘Minecat’ utility vehicles and conducted the orientation with mine staff. We provided comprehensive training programs for both the vehicle operators and maintenance personnel at the mine site, to ensure a seamless transition during mining operations. Drivetrain will provide ongoing field service and technical support to our customer, to ensure the success of the new vehicles. These units are the first vehicles of their kind for operational use in Western Australia and we’re proud that we have a satisfied customer.
