IMP commenced operations in 1999 and specialises in underground mining contracts. We have a growing workforce of around 100 employees and the ability to access greater numbers as required for larger projects.

DEVELOPMENT MINING EQUIPMENT

Since our inception, we have continued to grow and pursue our primary goal of becoming a quality supplier of mine roadway development works and remnant mining specialists to our clients. We have recently taken the step of purchasing numerous pieces of development mining equipment to support this goal and currently can supply all the necessary development equipment for two complete development units.

ROADWAY DEVELOPMENT AND REMNANT MINING PROJECTS

IMP has recently completed a development contract at Oaky No1 Mine. The project involved the recovery of old roadways in the mine and developing headings to access remnant coal for their second longwall project. The contract involved approximately 14km of drivage which was achieved on time and under cost. The initial drivage required a single entry roadway approx 970m in length, achieved by driving equal distance from each end. The project required that we be totally self sufficient; including the installation of all our own driveheads, secondary support and ventilation devices.

We have proposed several plans to mine owners regarding the remnant mining of remaining coal reserves no longer viable under their current mining methods. These proposals are gaining serious consideration from our customers.
