Sandvik Mining recently signed three major materials handling contracts in Latin America and Australia.
The most noteworthy is for supply of continuous mining equipment for a truckless in-pit crushing and conveying (IPCC) system in Latin America.

Sandvik said the contracts will be executed between 2012 and 2014.
President of Sandvik Mining, Gary Hughes, said “The importance, size and complexity of the systems and the impressive performance data demonstrate Sandvik Mining's capability to provide high-tech solutions in the area of continuous mining and materials handling systems for surface mining applications.”
