Open-Pit Mining

Open-pit mining is an extremely effective surface mining technique for extracting minerals, coal and other useful materials that are covered by relatively thin overburden layers. However, it takes the right equipment to penetrate the surface rock and reach the underlying layer in a timely and efficient manner.

Boyd CAT can provide the heavy equipment you need to improve the speed and productivity of your open-pit mining operation in Kentucky, Southern Indiana, West Virginia or Southeastern Ohio. We’ve been the region’s most trusted equipment solutions provider for more than 100 Years.
