Operating mines for mine owners and providing mining equipment is a core business. We operate mines in some of New Zealand’s most challenging topography and climatic conditions.
Whether it’s coal, gold, industrial minerals or construction aggregates we have the resources: skilled people, a wide range of plant and the support services to deliver any project.
Being a significant mine owner and operator in our right through sister companies Moore Mining and Boatmans Coal gives us a good understanding of the range of issues miners and project developers face in New Zealand.
EARTHWORKS for CIVIL PROJECTS
In the past we have worked with major civil contractors on a variety of projects and we retain an active interest in partnering with such companies to deliver the earthworks scope on large projects.
Most of our plant fleet is available for hire either wet including operators and fuel, or dry for both short term and long term hire periods.
Rehabilitation of land and management of environmental impacts is integral to the success of any mining operation. We have a strong background in rehabilitation earthworks and a proven track record. We are currently undertaking major earthworks as part of the Oceana Gold Globe Hill Mine site rehabilitation.
DRILL and BLAST
We carry out drill and blast for quarry operators and mine operators. We do our own blasthole drilling and our preferred partner for larger scale blasting jobs is Prime Explosives.
CIVIL ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION
Our capability spans road construction projects like the Pike River access road, infrastructure projects like the Invercargill City Council sewage treatment ponds completed with Downer through to concrete stream crossing structures for Solid Energy.
We retain concrete construction capability through Rosco’s son Craig Moore – who operates in Nelson and the West Coast as C Moore Building Ltd.
QUARRYING & AGGREGATES
We offer a full service to quarry owners from development through, drill and blast, quarry operation, materials processing with our mobile crushing and screening units and transport to market.
We also supply aggregates for the Reefton area from extraction permits we hold.
SERVICES FOR AGRICULTURE
Whether it’s a mini excavator or a 100 tonne bulldozer we have the equipment to handle all earth-moving and materials handling jobs on farms big and small. Over the years we have completed many river protection works for farmers and other clients.
ROAD HAULAGE & MATERIALS TRANSPORT
Part of our versatility is bulk materials transport. We cart coal, gravel, fertiliser and other bulk materials on a regular basis.
CONTAMINATED WASTE DISPOSAL
At our Reefton base we operate our consented landfill which is able to accept a range of contaminated materials from projects as far afield as Canterbury and Golden Bay.
Through our own resources and our independent associates we can provide design/build solutions for your project whether it be a new quarry, small mine development or an industrial or farm project.
