Activemine™ now fully approved by MSHA

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Active Control Technology Inc. announce that the U.S. Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has fully approved ActiveMine™, the premier wireless voice communications and locating system for mines.
MSHA approved ActiveMine’s wireless Wi-Fi phones – the final system component to be approved for use in all areas of underground coal mines. This clears the final regulatory condition for all previously announced installations to proceed and paves the way to additional sales opportunities.
“This is great news for customers who want to get the productivity and safety benefits of ActiveMine to work as quickly as possible in their mines,” said Steve Barrett, President and CEO, Active Control. “We thank customers for their confidence in ActiveMine’s successful approval, and MSHA for their assistance throughout the process.”
The completion of ActiveMine MSHA approvals comes approximately two months before the June 15, 2009 MINER Act deadline for all underground coal mines in the U.S. to submit mine safety plans that include provisions for wireless two-way communication and electronic tracking. There are approximately 650 underground coal mines in the U.S.
Barrett remarked, “We look forward to working with many potential customers that have been anticipating our final approvals before finalizing their purchase decision.”
