When the U.S. Marine’s V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft settled to the Libyan desert to retrieve the ejected U.S. airman, it did so with triple-melted alloys manufactured by Latrobe Specialty Steel. The V-22 Osprey with its unique tilt-rotor mechanism uses many Latrobe premium alloys for such critical components within the transmission gear boxes, rotor shafts and the engines.sand making machine
“The well executed rescue this week, showcased the distinctive advantages of the complex V-22 Osprey that can fly like a fixed-wing plane and land like a helicopter. Every one of Latrobe’s over 800 employees took great pride in their contribution to the Osprey and the rescue. The Latrobe process of triple melting, twice under vacuum, produces an extremely homogeneous premium material which withstands the demanding requirements of this multifaceted aircraft manufactured by Bell Helicopter Textron and The Boeing Co. These and other aerospace manufacturers rely on Latrobe’s exceptional processing capabilities and metallurgical expertise to ensure the highest level of performance,” added Mark T. Weberding, Vice President – Marketing & Sales.
Workers at Latrobe’s main plant in Latrobe, PA , its sister operations in Sandycreek, Venango County, PA and Wauseon, OH process these materials which are shipped into the various supply chains servicing the production of the Osprey. At each phase of the manufacturing process, these employees inspect and test Latrobe’s material for compliance to the various aerospace standards.construction waste recycling
Stronghold Metals Inc. The Company is pleased to announce that final preparations are underway for a major mineral resource outline drilling program at the Eagle Mountain Gold Project (“Eagle Mountain” or the “Project”), located in Guyana, South America. The Project comprises an area of approximately 5050 Ha (12,480 acres) in central Guyana, 200km southwest of the capital Georgetown and 45 kilometres from the historic Omai Gold Mine, which was in production from 1993 to 2005. In Sept 2010, Stronghold entered into an Earn-In and Joint Venture Agreement with a subsidiary of IAMGOLD Corporation, under which the Company has been granted the right to acquire in stages up to 95% interest in the Property.
The diamond drilling program will commence not later than March 31, 2011 and will consist of a minimum of 15,000 metres and at least 120 holes. One drilling contract with Orbit Garant Drilling Services Inc. of Quebec, Canada has already been executed and their drill rig is on site. As the program ramps up, the Company expects a second, in this case man-portable diamond rig, to be mobilised to the site by early May 2011. Discussions with additional drilling companies are currently in progress.
The Company’s primary focus is currently the accelerated development of the advanced exploration stage Eagle Mountain Gold Project. In November 2010, the Company filed an NI 43-101 reporting an Inferred Mineral Resources of 18Mt @ 1.27 g/t gold, containing 733,500 ounces of gold (using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade). More than 250,000 ounces of contained gold in this inferred mineral resource is hosted by oxide material (saprolite). The Project is on track to produce a preliminary economic assessment report or scoping study. Our primary focus at Eagle Mountain is to enhance this NI43-101 compliant mineral resource with advanced exploration drilling and mineral resource definition drilling.coal mill
