Canadian Carrier Works with Mining Industry on Communications (1/18)
Thursday, January 18, 2007 | Comments
SaskTel, a Canadian cellular carrier, is working with the mining industry across the province of Saskatchewan at Cigar and Rabbit lakes. SaskTel and Cameco partnered to build cellular towers on site, providing service for the mine sites and surrounding areas. SaskTel is working with Cameco and Areva Resources, another major player in the Saskatchewan uranium industry, to build cellular towers at other northern sites, such as McClean Lake, and Midwest in the near future. Agrium is using a wireless underground communication system designed and built by SaskTel to provide instant communications to employees throughout the mine complex. The system enhances safety and efficiency, and offers the possibility of future applications, including ID tagging and asset management, the carrier said.
