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.
Macmahon has celebrated 25 years of presence at BHP’s Olympic Dam polymetallic mine in South Australia.
Macmahon provides a training and development program at the Byerwen Coal Mine in the Bowen Basin, Queensland, that engages the local traditional land owners (the Jangga people) who are new to the mining industry. Formal traineeships result in a Certificate III in Surface Extraction and a career in mining with Macmahon.
