Sometimes it’s good to be all surface and no depth. That's a little mining humor. From up here, we can see the enormity of our task and the progress we’re making. On any given day, we’re inside the excavator operator’s cab, over in the trailer, managing surveying crews, or digging deep into a GIS-based mineral map. And Monterra is with us for every shift in focus. With the Monterra, we get high sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite positioning plus Android™ apps on Google Play™, including GIS maps. Monterra is the one rough and waterproof handheld we use to haul around all our permitting and inspection data, transportation schedules, weather information, and a little of "The King" on Internet radio on a Friday afternoon. You do what you gotta do to motivate your shift.
