Our open cut team

As one of Australia’s largest open cut mining service contractors, Downer Mining offers an enviable range of capabilities and nine decades of experience. We have worked in a wide range of commodities, including gold, base metals, iron ore and coal, at projects in Australia and overseas.

Backed by a large fleet of leading open cut mining equipment, including ultra-class excavators and trucks, we have both the gear and experience to deliver industry-leading services.

We pride ourselves on our people and the diverse skills they bring to our projects. Our strong safety and training focus works in parallel with creativity, innovation and hard work to provide optimal solutions to our clients. Our project managers and on-site operations can depend on the full support of our centralised plant management, engineering, training, and health, safety and environment teams, as well as technical and support personnel.

We operate under a range of contract styles, from traditional Schedule of Rates contracts through to full Alliance-style contracts. We work collaboratively with our clients to tailor contracts to meet their needs and are committed to achieving the best outcomes for their projects. We have a proven history of strong client relationships resulting in repeat business from satisfied clients.
