The Northparkes Difference

Professionally it couldn’t be better

“There are not many residential mining sites that are in great towns you want to live in.”
Linda Snyman – Senior Ops Geotechnical Engineer


We produce the vital components of our modern quality of life: the miracle of copper, gold and grains. They are the metal building blocks of electronics and infection-fighting surfaces, and the foundation of our food chain.


Northparkes is a copper and gold mine located 27 kilometres north-west of Parkes, in the Central West of New South Wales, Australia.

Since 1993 we have been celebrated for our high-quality copper deposits, low cost operations and loyal, committed people.

Our operation is made up of an underground block cave mine, a sub-level cave and an ore processing plant which produces copper concentrate for export.

We will discover the copper and gold deposits to take us even further into the future. We are setting up future generations of Northparkes miners for ‘A century of mining together’.
