Sunrise Dam Gold Mine Servicing

 

Sunrise Dam Gold Mine lies to the east of Lake Carey in the northern goldfields of WA, some 770km north-east of Perth, 220km North North-East of Kalgoorlie, and 55km South of Laverton. Formerly an open cut mine the operation has expanded to both a large open pit and an underground mine. The mine has produced some 5 million ounces of gold over the past ten years. The mine has been in operation since 1995 and in 2008 the underground mine reached a depth of 440m.

 

Our service technician has been out servicing the medical gasses and medical equipment on the mines to ensure optimal safety and quality assurance. Due to the depth and high degree of risk associated with servicing the underground mines an extensive amount of safety forms and inductions must be carried out before anyone new steps on site. Sunrise Dam operations have been high performers in safety and mine site operations being awarded the Global Safety Award trophy by Anglo Gold Ashanti in 2013.
