Byrnecut Australia's successful relationship with Oz Minerals at Prominent Hill saw us invited to operate their new Carrapateena project.
Oz Mineral's new Carrapateena Cu-Au operation is located in the outback of South Australia and has a mine life of over twenty years.
Following a 10 yr successful whole of mine operation at Prom Hill, Oz Minerals invited Byrnecut to assume control of Carrapateena's intensive development and production programme.
The mine utilises an extensive fleet of modern, large scale underground mining equipment with 21t capacity loaders & 63t trucks, hauling to surface until the underground crushers and conveyor declines are commissioned in 2022.
A fully computer controlled jumbo is supplemented by conventional split feed jumbos to complete over 1300m of fibrecreted development per month.
Carrapateena is located in the remote arid central Woomera region of South Australia, and is accessed by sealed and gravel roads. The site has Its own bitumen airstrip and regular air service.
Byrnecut operate the mine 365 days per year, 24 hours per day on a fly-in, fly-out basis from Adelaide. The company employs in the order of 460 people sourced mainly from SA.
