Debswana undertakes review of Scannex X-ray machines

Debswana Mining Company will do a public review of environmental impact statement for the proposed installation of the controversial Scannex low dose full body x-ray machines at its mining operations.

In a bid to upgrade security at its mining operations, Debswana said it embarked on a project to install Scannex X-ray machines. “The project is still at the planning phase hence this Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study. The project once approved will allow for the installation of Scannex Low Dose Full Body X-ray scanners at Debswana mining operations of Jwaneng, Orapa, Letlhakane and Damtshaa,” reads the public notice.

It says the Scannex machines are presently operating at all De Beers Group mining operations in South Africa and Namibia. “Debswana intends to implement the technology in a similar manner as done at operations that already have Scannex machines.”
