Materials Handling   Victor’s Plant Hire © Copyright Victor’s Plant Hire 2010 Materials Handling:    In 1994 we secured a Contract to load gold bearing sand dumps for Knights Gold Mine in the Germiston area using Wheel Loaders. This contract required the loading of 340 000 tons of sand per month running 24 hours per day. This division expanded rapidly. Soon we were responsible for loading in excess of 1,5 million tons per month. From this bulk sands loading operations the business diversified to the current main focus of the business being the bulk loading of Chrome and Platinum Concentrate for the Platinum Industry. We currently serve Clients situated in Brits, Marikana, Rustenburg, Pilanesberg and Lydenburg area's. Most of these operations run on a 24/7 basis. We are proud of our high Plant availability track record, thereby insuring a continued production for our clients. Load and Haul: We have secured several contracts that required the loading and hauling of gold- bearing tailings (sand/slime) to our clients' facilities for re-processing. This usually entails one or more loading tool (e.g. excavators) loading the tailings onto tipper trucks which in turn will deliver their payload to the processing facility several kilometres away. Such reclamation is used where the amount of material does not justify the cost in infrastructure for a conveyance system or hydraulic recovery.
