Since 2005, we have grown to become one of the largest surface mines in Australia, whilst continuing to foster a culture underpinned by safety, achievement, flexibility and teamwork to improve the skills of each and every person on the mine site every day. We are a hands-on team who all work together to meet our objectives. No job or day is the same with us, and we never miss an opportunity to share, learn and improve.
