One of the primary activities for man, which began even before agriculture, is the mining of minerals from mines and quarries. Although it consists in an activity with a high environmental impact, it constitutes the foundation of all other productive activities and, consequently, of the development and well-being of our society.
There are four basic mineral extracting methods: from mines or from open-pit quarries, which are the most common; or from underground mines and quarries which are accessed through shafts or tunnels; the last method is the extraction of minerals and fuels through boreholes.
The difference between mines and quarries basically depends on the material “cultivated” (in mining cultivation is the systematic exploitation of quarries and mines): metal ores, precious stones, refractory products and fuels are extracted from mines; marble, ornamental stones and building stones such as sand gravel, and peat are extracted from quarries.
Whether quarrying, mining or tunneling, these activities have in common: the extreme conditions, the dangerousness and the harshness of the work.
Dieci’s experience gained in these sectors, and the continuous feedback with its customers, has allowed to develop over time a series of special machines and equipment specifically designed for this type of activity: heavy, extreme and dangerous.
Versatility, power, compact dimensions, fluidity of movements, ease of use and dedicated technical solutions guarantee the best results in extreme conditions.
The Dieci Research & Development Centre is constantly working to find the best aesthetic and ergonomic solutions: the end result is the perfect synthesis of style and comfort.
