Commencement Prominent Hill contract SA

Date: 15-Jul-2013

In January 2013, Kalari commenced haulage of bulk (powdered) cement from Adelaide to Oz Minerals Prominent Hill in South Australia. The site is located 650 kilometres north west of Adelaide in the Gawler region of South Australia, an area providing the highest grades of copper concentrates.

Back in 2007, Kalari was pleased to be part of pouring the very foundations of the Prominent Hill site, with over 300 tonnes of general blend cement hauled to site on a continuous pour for the plant construction. Five years later, we are proud to be a key part of their ongoing backfill operations.

Our team of road train operators are delivering cement to the back fill plant on site which is then batched with aggregate and used to ‘back fill’ the empty underground voids called ‘stopes’. Double road trains depart to the site daily.

Tasks of this nature underpin our position as a prominent specialist bulk logistics provider to the mining and resources sector and other selected industries.
