Wagner CDI Trains at Freeport McMorans Climax Molybdenum Mine in Colorado
Kelly Protz, Certified Dealer Instructor at Wagner Equipment, recently completed training on Cat 789B and C-Series OHT's for four Freeport McMorans Climax Molybdenum Mine employees at their facility near Leadville, Colorado. Elevations at this facility exceed 13,000 ft. Climax Molybdenun Company is one of the world's leading molybdenum producers. The roots of Climas run deep tracing its name and origin to the early mining days in the high mountains of Colorado. The name "Climax" derives from the Climax Railroad Station which was built at the top of the Continental Divide as a place to uncouple helper locomotives after the long climb from Denver to the mining town of Leadville. Elevations at the Leadville facility exceed 13,000 ft. Pictured from left to right are: Wagner CDI Kelly Protz and Climax employees: Tim Yates, Scott Jackson, Tad Fry and Phil Cottrell.
Additional training will be conducted on Cat 994F,16M ,824H and Large TTT'S. Look for a training update in a future issue of this newsletter.
