Gibraltar Mine will utilize Immersive Technologies’ PRO3-B Transportable Advanced Equipment Simulator for operator training

Gibraltar Mine, the second largest open pit copper mine in Canada and largest employer in the Cariboo region has bolstered their operator training with the inclusion of Advanced Equipment Simulators from market leader Immersive Technologies.

The investment includes a transportable PRO3-B Advanced Equipment Simulator and Conversion Kits® to support a range of equipment. Immersive Technologies’ exclusive alliances with the world’s leading OEMs ensure that its simulators are accurate and authentic. Each simulator is supported by in-region personnel via a comprehensive Customer Support Program (CSP) ensuring maximum utilization.

Vice President of Operations, David Rouleau, says the company has chosen to work with Immersive Technologies, because of their proven track record of delivering real results and their position as global market leader in mining equipment simulation.

“Through working with Immersive Technologies we expect to see results in increased site safety, productivity and reduced unscheduled equipment maintenance,” Rouleau says. Gibraltar is owned by Taseko, a Canadian mining company, focused on the operation and development of mines in British Columbia.

“Our efforts to train with Advanced Equipment Simulators is key to our strategic workforce development. This investment will allow for measurable returns and play a major role in protecting our most valuable asset—our people,” says Rouleau.
