Underground ventilation plays a fundamental role in mining activities across the world, but many people are unaware of its importance.
In Brazil, although there are several underground exploration mines, it is common to find people who are not familiar with their operations or even who have never had contact with the technology applied.
It is crucial to understand that underground mines are not operated with carts and rails, as long ago depicted in cartoons. They have become highly mechanized, with galleries capable of supporting the traffic of large trucks to transport the extracted ore.
The deepest mines in Brazil reach depths of more than 1500 meters, and one of the main factors that make this exploration viable is forced ventilation.
