Last months, BAS Mining Trucks has delivered 12 mining trucks to two different mining cmpanies in Ecuador. Four Volvo FMX 10x4 tippers will be used by Logimin for the transport of limestone. Eight Volvo FMX 10x6 tippers will be in operation at the Fruta del Norte gold deposit (LundinGold) for infrastructural activities (construction of dams) and for the transport of raw material for the cement factory.
