The planet’s largest annual global mining conference and exposition begin Sunday, March 3, 2013 in Toronto. Wasser Resources Inc. supports northern aboriginal and resource based communities with a variety of technologies and related services.
Two northern First Nations, Kasabonika Lake First Nation of the fringe of Ontario’s Ring of Fire and Hartley Bay First Nation on the north-west coast of British Columbia, are both using Eagle Technology’s Proteus Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to help organize and administer their facilities and other assets. The fact that Eagle CMMS is cloud based, works seamlessly with computers and handhelds, and can incorporate RFID tags and Bar Coding makes it an ideal solution for communities and companies with widely dispersed assets.
Wasser Resources Inc. is working with Jacknife Energy, an Alberta based Wind Turbine and Hydro Micro-Turbine company to relieve northern communities of their dependence on flown-in diesel fuel to generate electricity.
Zorb-Tech is a new technology company that has developed a method to extract and isolate mercury pollutants that can be of critical importance to new and existing mining properties.
In the north preserving heat in buildings and facilities is of prime importance. Therefore, Heat Saving Systems air curtains for pedestrian and freight doors and Heat Saver Insulated Blinds for windows are more important in these regions than in the south.
Generating power is very expensive in the north, so the value of a power remediation, the ability to extract up to 30% more productive power out of stretched power supply makes Elspec’s power quality conditioning systems very important across the global mining sector.
