The mining industry utilizes a handful of heavy duty equipment to explore and develop underground mine site. The equipment is used in an assortment of ways from removing and stockpiling overburden, breaking and removing rocks to processing ores and carrying out reclamation projects after the mine is closed.

Room & pillar operations include continuous miners, feeder breakers, haulage systems, roof bolters, and utility vehicles.
