Business News Network Interviews Alaska Structures at PDAC

PDAC 2015 Reveals Industry Concerns

The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada puts on the world’s largest trade show for mining and ore exploration. PDAC 2015 centered on finding ways to get past looming issues in the mining field. They featured a TSX-Series Portable cabin as a way of addressing one of the issues surrounding mineral and mining exploration. The issue, very high operating costs and not getting a return to support these costs. With billions at stake, the Canadian government is working to help with this issue. Tax credits and lowering the cost of operations (one way is by using portable systems) can help the struggling industry.

Fabric Structures and their uses.

Cold-Climate and Extreme-Altitude Mining Solutions

Mining operations often take managers and miners to the most remote locations with extremely harsh conditions. They need structures that can protect them as they work, and will last the length of the operation. For instance, the Bema Gold mines are in far east Russia, where weather conditions are extreme. It snows 315 days a year with an average temperature of -67°F and up to 132 mph wind gusts. They have fabric buildings from Alaska Structures that they used for 10 years before replacing them. The Bema Gold mines and other operations facing similar harsh weather need durability and long-lasting quality, which their designs can provide.
