Epiroc's first Boltec M10 Battery bolting rig deployed in the U.S. is at Nevada Gold Mines.

"We're thrilled to help our customers lead the charge in electrifying the U.S. mining sector with the Boltec M10 Battery," said Russ Osborne, key account manager at Epiroc USA.

The Boltec M10 SG rock bolting rig for ground support brings an improved operator work environment, reduced noise, and a smaller environmental footprint to underground operations. The rig features an onboard charger for battery charging during downtime.

Epiroc Competency Center for Underground Mining, headquartered in Elko, Nevada, offers technical support in the region, as well as electrification, and battery-electric vehicle (BEV) expertise, including diesel-to-battery conversions. The centre is equipped to service and support BEV transition.

"Nevada Gold Mines embraces shifting to a more decarbonized method of mining and is looking forward to the benefits of the BEV Boltec M10 and seeing its success. The Boltec M10 has proven to be a valuable asset in the industry, providing environmental benefits and optimizing operational efficiency," said David Byrnes, mine manager at NGM Leeville Underground Complex.
