Working alongisde Ontario Mine Rescuewe have been steadily recreating the official OntarioMine Rescue Experience. The first phase was launched as an educational/experiential installation at our local Mining and Science Center, Dynamic Earthfeaturing 3 interactive pods supporting a single player experience or co-op multiplayer, played as a team.
Not only were the developers keen to bring the simulation to the public in an accessible form, but they continually engaged with Ontario Mine Rescue to ensure they incorporated real challenges, ideas, strategies and equipment used during underground mining emergencies. While the unveiling of this system at Dynamic Earth is a tremendous achievement for mine safety awareness in the province of Ontario, it represents the first step in a far more powerful journey towards virtual scenario-based learning development for Ontario Mine Rescue emergency responders.

The interactive underground mine we developed also provides us with endless opportunities for training and development, engaged and immersive learning, product development and demonstration, and mining industry education and awareness.
The product is currently still in development as we continue to grow and revise based on real world data.
