The Telfer Gold Copper Mine is located in the Great Sandy Desert in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Telfer is a fly-in-fly-out operation, 400 kilometres southeast of Port Hedland and approximately 1,300 kilometres from Western Australia’s capital, Perth.
Macmahon was awarded a rolling contract until 2022 which commenced in February 2016. It will see Macmahon providing the full scope of services for open pit mining and bulk earthworks, including drill and blast, mining waste materials, equipment hire and subcontracting.
I’m grateful to have the support of my fellow greenie DTO’s, the trainers and other experienced operators who have helped my transition to mining and gain my new skills as a competent DTO. Mining has shown me how to work more closely with fellow employees and has exposed me to learning more about the many different personalities of others.
