AS Australia’s leading provider of mechanised underground mining services, Barminco is committed to service excellence and exceptional results, delivering long-term value to its clients.
Contracts with most major mining houses in Australia and around the world sees Barminco deliver a full range of underground mining services including jumbo development, production mining, diamond drilling, shotcreting, vertical development and crushing and screening.
Key value propositions for the engagement of Barminco contract services include access to knowledge and expertise, extensive equipment and staff resources, and supply chain relationships. Barminco business development and commercial manager David Noort said mine owners weighed up the costs and benefits of operating a mine themselves, compared to engaging a contractor.
“In development mining in particular, there is a distinct advantage to using a contractor and our clients recognise that it reduces the time and cost required to bring mines into production,” Mr Noort said. Drawing on more than 22 years of experience as a contractor and a company-wide focus on applying an innovative approach, Barminco has demonstrated a consistent record of performance improvements following engagement. These improvements include increases in development and production beyond the mine call, overall cost reductions and improvements in safety. With more than 2700 permanent employees globally and the largest company-owned fleet of major mechanised mining equipment units in the world, Barminco is exceptionally proud of its history of performance, including a recent world-record monthly advance for development mining at one of its remote projects.
