Belgorod Region, town of Gubkin. A new KRF-40 bucket-loader, manufactured by the German company PAUS, has arrived at the Gubkin mine.
The new bucket-loader is mounted on rails and attached to overhead wiring. It is meant for use in loading ore spillage and for clearing rock from mining roadways and railway areas. Once documentation is complete, the machine will be taken apart and lowered into the mine. Miners will begin using it at the end of March once it has been inspected by a commission.
