Nordgold's Bissa launched in January 2013

The deal, made through Ghanian partner West African Tyre Service (WATS), includes 41 iTrack II mining tyre monitoring systems for haul trucks at the gold mine.

Terms of the deal and a timeline for placement were not disclosed.

Transense confirmed the systems will be supplied on a rental and service basis via WATS.

WATS OTR tyres sales and services director Vibi Chandra said Nordgold was able to view the "considerable advantages" of iTrack installations at sister mine Somita, which has been using the technology since May 2018.

"West Africa is a region with dozens of mines and hundreds of haul trucks, and it is our intention to introduce our new enhanced service, including iTrack, to our existing portfolio of mines as well as other mines across the region," he added.

Bissa, launched in January 2013, is located 85km north of Burkina Faso's capital city of Ouagadougou.
