About Byrnecut

Byrnecut is the leading mechanised underground mining contractor in the world offering a professional, reliable service optimising the development and production of mineral resource projects.

Our large fleet of specialised underground mining equipment provides an efficient and targeted approach to all our underground contracts.

This, coupled with experienced employees at all levels of the business, results in sustainable quality and integrity throughout our operations.


Our commitment to safety is paramount to our success.

Constant appraisal of our health and safety processes and ongoing internal training allows us to offer a comprehensive, standardised OH&S package across all our sites.

We were recently awarded certification for our management systems for ISO 9001: 2008 (Quality Management Standard), ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management Standard), OHSAS 18001:2007 (Health and Safety Management Standard) and  AS/NZS 4801:2001 (Health and Safety Management Standard).

Providing opportunities for our employees to grow professionally benefits both the company and our staff.

We are a registered training organisation and offer nationally accredited training including a supervisor development program. In addition we have an indigenous training program run by BOAB (Building Opportunities for Aboriginal Business), to offer indigenous people the opportunity to train for employment in the mining industry.

Building lasting relationships with our employees, clients and suppliers is part of our culture. By effective communication and open reporting we have built mutually beneficial relationships with mining companies both large and small. In many instances we have been involved in projects from initial feasibility through to full underground production.

We have a large number of long term employees within the company. From the executive chairman down to our on-site storeman there are over 130 people who have been with the Byrnecut Group for over 10 years, some 13 have been with the company for over 20 years!


Byrnecut Australia is continually striving for excellence in its field and we aim to grow both our reputation and our operations through quality, safety and reliability. With an open approach to innovation and an adaptable approach to our contracts we offer a great service to any metalliferous underground mining project.
