Established in 1999, MineARC Systems is now the global leader in the manufacture and supply of emergency safe-refuge to the underground mining, tunneling, and chemical processing industries.

Emergency refuge forms an integral part of an underground mine, tunnel or chemical operation’s wider Emergency Response Plan (ERP). Fires, explosions, rock-falls, flooding, and the release of smoke and other forms of toxic gas are the types of industrial incidents that occur all too frequently, despite the high levels of planning and safety precautions in place.

In these types of emergencies, when evacuation is no-longer safe or practical, emergency refuge is designed to provide a safe and secure ‘go-to’ area for personnel to gather and await extraction. MineARC refuges have been successfully used around the world in multiple mine and tunneling emergencies to save lives: Click here to view.

MineARC was the Winner of the 2010, 2012 and 2013 West Australian Exporter of the Year Awards, and the 2013 International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA) award for Leading Safety Initiative.
