All mines are dealing with extreme corrosion. Minerals, water, chemicals, and salt all combine to corrode plant and equipment at an exponential rate. CCA offers a treatment for static plant and mobile equipment. We can quote on individual plant, or whole of mine. We specialise in mothball equipment on mines in ‘care and maintenance’.
