Deep in the Amazon jungle, in November 2021, mining works are underway. Jim Elkins flew from Arizona to visit the mine, answering an urgent call for help: GPS receivers aboard the drill rigs were not working. Jim is a specialist in mining and automation, working for Flanders, a US-based company with expertise in electrical machinery and control systems. Flanders pioneers machine control technology that takes mining efficiency to the next level. The drill rigs at the mine create holes with centimeter precision, ensuring optimal fragmentation of rock. This makes subsequent jobs like stone extraction and removal faster and easier.
