Quality All data are recorded by the Shot Firer in cooperation with the Engineering Services Supervisor and Station Leader. Cubic metres of uncrushed rock removed are calculated by visual inspection and how many loader buckets are produced.
The hours of crusher operation need to be analysed to determine if the vibration and noise contribute to disturbance of snow and Wilson's storm petrels.
