ONTARIO – Norcat
of Sudbury, Ont., has announced plans to expand its unique underground centre in Onaping. The company is the only innovation centre that owns and operates an underground mine designed to enable start-ups, small/medium enterprises, and international companies to develop, test, and demonstrate new technologies in an operating mine environment.
Demand for Norcat’s expertise has been growing the last three years. The underground centre has become the global destination for mining companies to “see and touch” emerging technologies that are poised to transform the industry, says the company.
As well as investing in the underground centre, Norcat has also developed an array of training, technology, and innovative service offerings to meet the growing and diverse skilled labour training and development needs of global mining and mining technology companies focused on competitiveness, shareholder and stakeholder value, productivity, and health and safety.
