TORONTO, ONTARIO (November 9, 2010) – Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE and TSX: RBA), the world’s largest industrial auctioneer, will be conducting a multi-million dollar auction at the Company’s permanent auction site in Toronto (Bolton) on Tuesday, December 7. More than 600 equipment items and trucks are already featured in the auction, including an unused Sandvik DS510-C roof bolter-items continue to be added daily.
The Sandvik DS510-C is a fully mechanized, one-man operated, electro-hydraulic bolting jumbo used for reinforcing rock in underground mines, tunnels and large cross sections. Roof bolting is also commonly carried out in coal mines to secure mine roofs to be self-supportive.
The roof bolter was consigned by BHP Billiton Canada-part of BHP International, one of the largest mining companies in the world. The DS510-C was to be used in the company’s underground mining operations at the Ekati Diamond Mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories; however, due to size restrictions it was never put to use. It will be sold dissembled on auction day (for ease of transport).
