Women trainees at Freeport Indonesia training on Immersive Technologies Command for Underground simulators

Staff Reporter

Freeport Indonesia is using the Immersive Technologies simulators at its Grasberg gold mine which will enable women, once trained, to perform operational roles.
 
Historically, only operators with previous in-field experience in operating LHDs were permitted to operate them via command for underground. 
 
Trainees are given 10 hours of classroom training, followed by 20 hours in the LHD simulator. After completion, they conduct a further 20 hours of training within the Immersive Technologies' Command for Underground simulator where they advance to practical training and evaluation.
