Stantec’s Stephen Evans talks rolling resistance, autonomous hauling, and dust suppression with North American Mining Magazine.

When we think of operational efficiency and sustainability in mining, haul roads are likely not the first thing that come to mind. Stephen Evans, Senior Principle Civil Engineer, dives into the world of mining haul roads. In the article, he says it’s not only that good roads improve performance, but bad roads are an active drain on a mine’s efficiency and environmental performance. He also shares how autonomous vehicles impact roads, and says water isn’t always the best dust suppression method.
