Awarded, mobilised and commenced the Drill & Blast component of open pit production at the ABM Resources Ltd Old Pirate Gold Mine in the Tanami Desert, Northern Territory. This project was an extremely high grade gold deposit in vastly sensitive ecological area of Australia.
Midwest Vanadium and Redline Drill & Blast entered into a 2 year service arrangement direct to MVPL. Unfortunately in February 2014, a fire in the plant forced MVPL to cease its production mining operations.
Redline Drill & Blast was engaged with a 19 month drill and blast contract with Minepower GMK Exploration Pty Ltd Meekatharra Gold Project A to complete a cut-back on the historic Blue Bird Open Pit.
Redline Drill & Blast supplied drill and blast services to Minepower Kentor Minerals (WA) Pty Ltd Burnakura Gold Project.
From January 2011 to July 2012, drill and blast services to Minepower Midwest Vanadium Commenced to provide material necessary to complete infrastructure during the construction phase.
Redline Drill & Blast were subcontracted by Hampton Mining and Civil to service the drill and blast requirements for Sandfire Resources NL Project.
Key milestones during our involvement include;
Completion of the box-cut for underground
First shipment of DSO delivered on schedule
Open pit material movement of approximately 13M BCM, drilled over 900,000 metre of blast holes
SFR awarded of Digger of the Year 2012 at the industry "Diggers and Dealers" conference.
The 2.5 year Downer EDI Mining BHP Redmont Quarry 8 A showed a wide diversity of our capabilities. This project required absolute attention to detail to maintain high levels of quality control, communication and co-operation due to the quarries proximity to BHP's existing infrastructure and operating rail network.
Barrick Limited (Kundana) Moonbeam (Stage 3) Open Pit Project. This was a successive stage to the previously completed Moonbeam (Stage 2) project. Again, existing infrastructure and an operating underground mine (Raleigh) required precision drill and blast practices.
