Columbian EarthZyme® Haul Road

Columbian Coal Mine Puts EarthZyme® to the Test   A pilot project was carried out to prove the efficacy and enormous strength of EarthZyme® roads to facilitate the use of heavy trucks. These trucks are required in the mining, logging and oil operations around the globe. This specific road stabilization project was on a mine haul road in one of the largest coal mines in Colombia. This operation produces nearly two million tons of coal per year, maintaining a sterile standard ratio of 6 to 1. The mine mobilizes approximately 15 million cubic meters per year using CAT 793 trucks with a capacity of 380 tons. It also employs smaller CAT 777 trucks with a capacity of 140 tons. All coal at this mine moves in double truck lanes with a traffic gross weight of 32 tons. These trucks travel on the road approximately 22 hours a day, maintaining a … Read More
