How can companies capitalize on technology investments in Mining?

GlobalData’s mine-site technology surveys investigate the degree to which mines across the globe have invested in a range of technologies, spanning mine management software, predictive maintenance, drones, autonomous vehicles, collision avoidance, wearables, remote control vehicles and more. In this report, we compare the overall investment trends by technology as well as by region and key country, by type of miner – major or non-major – and by mine type. We also compare results from the most recent survey, conducted between December 2021 and February 2022, with previous surveys. Have a look at our report and gain insights into:
  • Which technologies have been most widely invested in and implemented
  • Which mines have the highest penetration of technologies
  • Which technologies have seen an increase in the level of investment over the last two years
  • Comparison between surface and underground mines, in terms of level of investment in technology

The Foxleigh mine is an open cut operation in the Bowen Basin. It produces low volatile PCI coal for Asian steel mill customers.

It is located 12km south of Middlemount and 272km northwest of Rockhampton.

The proposed work scope of Macmahon involves the hire and maintenance of 21 large capacity dump trucks as well as ancillary equipment over a five-year period.

Macmahon will also provide maintenance to client equipment at the Foxleigh site, which is jointly owned and operated by QMetco, POSCO Australia and Nippon Steel Australia.

The contract is estimated to generate around $250m in revenue for Macmahon and requires a capital expenditure of approximately $50m.

According to Macmahon, the majority of the cost falls on the acquisition of 220t dump trucks with an expected life of ten years.

Macmahon Holdings CEO and managing director Michael Finnegan said: “We are very pleased to be selected as the preferred equipment and maintenance provider for the Foxleigh project, and we are looking forward to delivering for a new client in Queensland.

“This selection highlights our expertise in sourcing and maintaining large scale mining equipment and our ability to offer a range of service models to our clients.”

In August, Macmahon Holdings secured an approximately $23m contract to provide services for mineral exploration firm Strandline Resources at the Coburn mineral sands project in Western Australia.
