Post Doze Licence – Expression of Interest
Post Doze is a method of improving the economics of waste material movement by extending the use of dozers. The Post Doze method was developed jointly by 3D Data Guidance and MEC Mining and is protected by an PCT Patent Application number: PCT/AU2017/050915. The Post Doze method is applicable to strip mines and bulk earthmoving applications where waste is moved less than 200m horizontally. In Post Doze, a 100 -200 tonne excavator is used to elevate and translate waste towards the low wall, which is then pushed to spoil by dozers. A significant volume of work has been undertaken on the method to validate the value and create operational sequencing and training material.
The inventors (MEC Mining and 3D DATA Guidance) are seeking a mine owner or earthmoving partner to apply Post Doze at one or multiple operations. It is proposed that an exclusive licence will be granted to the preferred partner in Queensland for a period of 5 years. We are currently seeking expressions of interest from mine owners and contractors.
