Mining Legends interview with Dale Elphinstone

The Mining Legends Project, a zero-hours rebuild of an R2900G loader, was a private-sector initiative that provided significant proceeds to several critical organisations and charities around Australia. Mining Legends recently sat down with the creator of the famous R2900G, Mr Dale Elphinstone. They spoke with Dale about the Mining Legends Project and his thoughts on the initiative. The Elphinstone Group and Westrac donated the engine which contributed to making the project rebuild a success. For more information about the initiative, visit mininglegends.com
