The way we work

We will be better tomorrow than we are today.

We are always working towards new ways to achieve our vision of ‘A century of mining together’.

This means implementing improvements and new technologies so we can work smarter, and remain a cost competitive operation for many years to come.

Northparkes has always been a benchmark for industry innovation, from our inception as the first block cave mining operation in Australia, to becoming the world’s most automated underground mine in 2015.

In recognition of this achievement and others, we were named Prospect Mining Hard Rock Mine of the Year in 2015.

Our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement extends throughout our value chain. From our multi-award winning Emergency Response Team to our industry-first dust suppression trials, we are always seeking opportunities to learn and improve.
