The Bakyrchik mining enterprise is considering the possibility of expanding its fleet of haul trucks made by the Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ, the enterprise’s Director General Kenbeiyl Isayev announced.
When asked about possible plans to buy BelAZ haul trucks, Kenbeiyl Isayev noted that the matter would be looked into in late 2019 – early 2020.
At present the Bakyrchik mine uses 70 units of new mining transport equipment, including 26 BelAZ trucks.
According to the source, the Belarusian vehicles make serious competition to Komatsu’s ones.
The Bakyrchik mining enterprise develops a gold mine in eastern Kazakhstan. The Eurasian Development Bank participates in financing the project. (BelTA/Ukrainian metal)
