Equipment Fleet

Equipment Fleet

Dumas maintains the highest quality equipment fleet to meet clients’ needs. We have sufficient capacity within our owned equipment fleet to deliver on shaft, development, raising and construction projects for any operating mine or mine development project.

Dumas has built strong relationships with several of the world’s top mining fleet suppliers. Given these relationships, Dumas has brand new equipment available to deploy to projects with very short lead times for projects to begin on time.

Dumas’ Maintenance Facility located in Timmins, Ontario has the capacity to perform remanufacturing of even the largest underground mining gear. This allows Dumas to have a standby fleet of remanufactured gear to deploy on shorter term projects. Having this facility and a strong fleet management team allows Dumas to be proactive in preventative maintenance while minimizing equipment downtime to ensure projects targets are met.

Typically, the equipment required to complete a shaft sinking project is specific to the design and needs of the sinking and final use requirements of the shaft. The procurement of the critical and most capital intensive equipment can be handled by the client, contractor or the project itself (in a target price contract) depending upon total capital outlay, duration of the project and re-market value.

With a substantial fleet of rolling stock equipment and well-structured and supported relationships with our primary equipment suppliers, no project is too big a challenge for Dumas to undertake. Remanufacturing and preventive maintenance programs ensure that excess capacity is maintained within the fleet to enable a quick response to clients’ needs.

Rob Carter - Vice President, Manitoba Business Unit, Hudbay Minerals Inc.
Dumas Contracting has been an integral part of Hudbay’s mining team at our Lalor Mine. They have provided a full-service lateral and vertical development advance, construction and mechanical team that works closely with our people, embracing Hudbay’s core values and our “one team one vision” approach to work management. Lalor has transitioned from a base metal mine to a gold operation, and mining of the gold and copper-gold zones at current production rates would not have been possible without the full support of the Dumas team.
