From Australia’s east coast coal mines to remote gold projects in the west, Macmahon Holdings provides services for mining operations all over the nation. Its work to build up some of Australia’s top projects has led to it taking out the Epiroc Contract Miner of the Year title.
Macmahon, renowned Australian specialist in ground support installation methods, have partnered with Sandvik to improve safety and productivity in their cable bolting process. In an international industry first, the newly designed Sandvik DS422i cable bolter debuted at the Fosterville Gold Mine, 20 kilometres from the city of Bendigo in Victoria.
The rollout of a $6 million autonomous drill fleet at the Tropicana Gold Mine is believed to be an industry first for hard rock mining using hammer versus the more traditional rotary concept when it comes to blast-hole drilling.
