Carrapateena is a copper-gold underground mine located in the highly prospective Gawler Craton in South Australia approximately 160km north of Port Augusta. The project is located on Pernatty Station and its supporting infrastructure is located within Oakden Hills Station and features a sub-level cave mine with a production rate of 4.3mtpa of ore. Ore will be transported to the surface via an inclined conveyor.
Phase1 of the project includes the installation of the CS1 Crushing Station and associated inclined conveying system to surface.
In addition to the materials handling system, supporting infrastructure is required, including dewatering, services, ventilation, 11kV power distribution and communication systems.
The project consisted of Surface and Underground works to install HV Infrastructure, LV Cabling, Communication cabling, and instrumentation.
Areas of the works included primary gyratory crusher station, Tramp removal area, Ore handling conveyors, Bunker Conveyor, 3 primary ventilation fans, and Mine services such as Raw water and Fire water supplies.
