RCT won Innovative Mining Solution of the Year with its ControlMaster Independent Guidance solution at the 2016 Prospect Mining Awards held in Sydney recently.

The national awards have been running for more than a decade and are one of the most prestigious awards programs for the mining industry in Australia.

“We were absolutely thrilled to have received this award,” says, RCT’s Executive Director and CEO Brett White. “We truly believe in the solution and its ability to transform the underground mining industry,” he says. “This award is a fantastic acknowledgement of our team’s hard work and dedication to the industry.

“Everything we do at RCT is a collaborative effort; our team’s technical insight is combined with the best minds and hands-on experience in the world which enables us to produce solutions that we consider to be 'game-changers' for the industry.”

RCT’s ControlMaster Independent Guidance solution allows underground vehicles to travel autonomously at greater speeds in narrow and difficult-to-navigate drives, effortlessly; delivering significant gains in production, while eliminating machine damage and ensuring KPI’s are met every time.

“The system is different to others available on the market today as it can be installed on all makes and models of underground loaders and trucks, making it ideal for sites that operate a mixed fleet,” says White.

“The fact that this system won Innovative Mining Solution of the Year just reinforces just how advanced it is,” he adds.
