The successful introduction of battery power to hard rock mining isn’t going to be about the correct choice of battery chemistry alone, it will be about engineering a battery propulsion system that is fit-for-purpose with the mining application and duty cycle, and one with maximum flexibility to allow for the rapid pace of battery technology advances that will inevitably open up options for diesel-free mine planning and retrofitting. http://www.macleanengineering.com/media-en/blog
