R. A. Martin has spent all his life working for contract mining and owner-operated mining businesses around the world. He has gained a wealth of skills and a broad knowledge base from every new job that he has worked on. The work has led him to write a series of books for the mining industry and equipment operators to make their job easier and to allow them to become proficient in the mining industry. One of these books is “Back to Basics: How to Move Dirt Efficiently” (published by Xlibris AU).

This book has been written in a simple to read and understand format without all the fancy jargon. It will be of great assistance to any level of management who runs or is in charge with the mining operations functions in the open pits. There are tried and proven techniques and explanations on how to set mining business up for success. There are clear diagrams that will allow readers to understand what the section is about and how to improve it if it is not performing effectively.

“The equipment today is of a far greater standard of horsepower and safety than a lot of the equipment I have operated around the world, yet many of these operators don’t ever reach their fullest potential,” Martin points out. “My book is aimed at giving options and solutions to how we can mine dirt efficiently and this book can be used by leading hands, supervisors, and superintendents to highlight methods to do certain tasks, as well as being very helpful for operators. If we can get management and operators thinking along the same lines, we can achieve a better result in a more cost-effective manner and have a harmonious working relationship on all levels of employment status.”

“Back to Basics: How to Move Dirt Efficiently” serves as a guide for the mining industry personnel who are currently employed in the industry and those people who are just starting their careers in this dynamic and rewarding industry. Martin hopes they will enjoy reading this book and take away some valuable ideas and suggestions to make their jobs easier and more enjoyable.
