Mine Production

Throughout 2015, Byrnecut Australia delivered 11 million tonnes of ore for our clients.
In doing so, 1 million metres of production drilling and 50 million tonne-km of trucking were achieved.

Our current fleet of mechanised production equipment includes:

  • Sandvik Production Drills
  • Caterpillar and Sandvik Loaders
  • Atlas Copco, Caterpillar, Komatsu and Sandvik Trucks

Byrnecut are at the forefront of remote control and automation in underground production and have introduced automated loading systems to numerous operating mines. We have expertise in various methods of loader control and automation including:

  • Caterpillar MineGem
  • Caterpillar Command
  • Nautilus Automated Guidance System (AGS)

All members of Byrnecut’s management and technical staff have had development and production experience from a hands-on level to a management level at producing mines. This experience ranges from hand-held narrow vein stoping to highly mechanised long-hole open stoping and caving techniques and backfill methods.
