DMC QUICK FACTS
Over its 36-year history, DMC Mining Services has consistently proven itself as an innovator in its field.
The company was founded in 1980 as Dynatec Mining Limited.
In its second year in business, it started building the Macassa Mine shaft, for which, it still holds the record for the deepest single-lift timbered shaft in the world at 7,225 ft (2,202 metres).
DMC developed the Long Round Concept for shaft sinking, an innovation that improved productivity by 20%.
The company used Rail-Veyor haulage technology for the first time in North America at Vale's 114 orebody in Sudbury to drive twin drifts at over 400 ft (121 metres) per week.
The company initiated and developed leading edge, shaft sinking technology using Shaft Boring Roadheaders (SBRs) designed and built in Germany for a twin shaft project in Canada.
DMC's Jansen team performed the first ever installation of shaft tubbing using a robotic arm called the Blairmore Ring Erector (BRE).
