How To Use MiningTARA

It is possible to access the database from the home page using the Equipment Search bar and Top Categories, and sign-in is not required. However, registering on the site allows users to save and review favourite items, and to receive quarterly email updates on new equipment added.

On the Equipment page, a number of options are available.

  • Search bar - separate search terms with a space; a comma is used as ‘OR’
  • Filters - select terms under one or more categories to narrow the selection on screen
  • Compare - tick the box on two items of equipment, and select the Compare button
  • Use the View More button to access the supplier information, detailed description, TRL level, fact sheet (if available), specifications and features for each piece of equipment.
  • Registered users can star favourite items, and view these by using the Favourites button (visible once logged in).

To register as a user, use the Sign Up button at the top right of the screen.
Currently, MEMSA membership is a requirement to add equipment to the database. Contact to find out more about becoming a MEMSA member. Due to the specific aims of the TARA project, this opportunity is open to South African companies manufacturing locally, and meeting relevant membership requirements.
