Byrnecut Australia's successful relationship with Oz Minerals at Prominent Hill saw us invited to operate their new Carrapateena project.
Oz Minerals’ Carrapateena Cu-Au operation is located 160km north of Port Augusta in South Australia and has a mine life of over twenty years.
Following a successful 10-year whole of mine operation at Prominent 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 an underground crusher.
Having successfully broken through to the surface the sub-level cave at Carrapateena has begun to optimise for production, now that the safe development of the cave has been established. The lower sub level cave is planned to transition to a block cave.
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 530 people sourced mainly from SA.
