Fabick CAT of Fenton, Mo., and Caterpillar Global Mining presented a new Cat 316E hydraulic excavator valued at $250,000 to S&T’s Experimental Mine on Sept. 26.The machine will be used to excavate materials, dig trenches for drainage control and lay pipelines.

“The hydraulic hammer attachment allows the machine to be used for breaking boulders and concrete structures,” says Samuel Frimpong, the Robert H. Quenon Chair of Mining Engineering at S&T. “The machine’s use becomes more critical in areas where explosives cannot be used due to safety or environmental concerns.”
