BẮC KẠN — The northern province of Bắc Kạn has invested nearly VNĐ2 billion (US$86,900) installing cameras at six mineral mines to supervise work.
All of the six mines are in Chợ Đồn District and each of mine has at least two cameras.
The cameras are installed in the mines’ gates to supervise electronic weighing stations and are connected through a host computer to the Chợ Đồn Natural Resources and Environment Division.
The cameras at the mines are managed and protected by the mine management board.
Nông Đình Thép, deputy head of the Industry Management Division under the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, which chairs the project, said the installation was completed on September 26.
The system will officially go operational later this month.
Thép said that the cameras will help improve management and production in the province. — VNS
