Resident Tour of Komatsu Proving Grounds Mission Road, Helmet Peak Area

A free 1.5 tour has been arranged for April 10th. Some members of the Metals & Mining club as well as other interested residents, will be caravanning to the site. A sign-up clipboard will be in the lobby. The tour will be limited to 30 residents. Please meet in the clubhouse lobby, with name badges at 8:30am.
On site, participants will see the massive rigid chassis mining trucks (like the large dump trucks we see work-ing ASARCO’s Mission mine complex). Komatsu uses the facility to assemble and test their rigid chassis mining trucks. Attendees will be able to see the trucks underway, the massive tires used on them and hopefully the assembly process inside the building, etc. Contact Frank Young if you have questions at fpyiii@yahoo.com.
