Our Capabilities

Total mine development and production to specialised services

Underground – The Complete Package

Underground Production

Macmahon can deliver ground support management plans associated with any production scenario. Our operations include drill, blast, load (including teleremote), haul and backfill processes. Ownership of a mechanised cable bolting fleet and in-house shotcreting further augments our capabilities.

Raise Drilling

Our experienced teams regularly deliver raise drilling in combination with other shaft development services ranging from site setup, collar (foundation) development, presinks, full face benching, horidiam, stripping, lining, ground support and project management.

Shaft Sinking and Lining

Our dedicated shaft sinking and engineering teams have world-class experience in designing and constructing major shaft hoisting systems and can tailor a complete package from feasibility, through to design, supply and construction.


Our shotcreting services include slope stabilisation, portal development, in-cycle spraying of underground development headings, barricade construction, mining through backfill and difficult ground conditions, and rehabilitation work. Macmahon is also experienced in civil shotcrete application.

Cable Bolting

Macmahon’s cablebolting operations are structured to ensure complete maintenance and supervision. Each team can operate independently on site. Where conditions permit, installation of more than 5,500m single or twin strand cable bolts per month can be achieved.
The options that are available to graduates are amazing, whether you decide to get into Underground, Surface or Civil, Macmahon has the capability. I personally only want to work underground, but I know that if I want a change, Macmahon can facilitate it.
