Nevada Gold Mines (NGM), a joint venture between Barrick (61.5%) and Newmont (38.5%), has selected Komatsu to deliver haul trucks.

NGM’s assets include ten underground and 12 open-pit mines, two roasting facilities, two autoclave facilities, four oxide mills and five heap leach facilities.

As per the multi-year agreement, Komatsu will deliver 62 Komatsu 930E-5 haul trucks to NGM between 2023 and 2025.

The new haul trucks are set to be deployed at two mines in Nevada. Of these, 40 will be deployed at the Carlin Complex and 22 at the Cortez site.

Recently, Komatsu delivered trucks and installed auxiliary equipment at Barrick’s Lumwana mine in Zambia.

Nevada Gold Mines executive managing director Peter Richardson said: “Based on the successful implementation at Lumwana, we chose to upgrade our fleet with 62 new Komatsu trucks.

“Komatsu has provided us with tremendous regional support and their team in Elko has been instrumental in helping us maintain our fleet with parts and component rebuilds for our trucks; a wheel motor upgrade program, and maintenance and support for the P&H shovels that are part of our operations.”

NGM also purchased support equipment from Komatsu.

Komatsu North America Mining Division vice-president and general manager Josh Wagner said: “We will be ready to support the fleet ramp-up with our state-of-the-art and growing Elko service capabilities.”

Komatsu is building a warehouse adjacent to its Elko service centre in Nevada, US, with completion planned for 2024.

The new 50,000ft² facility is expected to expand the company’s local parts support for mining and construction customers in the region.
