High speed development

The global leader in high speed development

With unmatched safety, speed and efficiency Barminco is the global leader in high speed, hard rock mine development.

We utilise state-of-the-art electric/hydraulic jumbo drilling machines equipped to the highest standards and the best operators in the industry to fast track decline development. This enables early access to underground reserves for our clients.

With over 30 years’ experience in the management and operation of development projects, we are able to mobilise rapidly and achieve benchmark productivity, resulting in lower overall costs and maximum net present value for our clients’ mines.

To support the development activities Barminco completes all the corresponding ground support in-house. Working with our clients to meet their ground support needs Barminco sites utilise various rockbolts, mesh, cables, fibrecrete and other ground support techniques.

As well as horizontal development for capital and operating situations, Barminco is capable of developing large scale underground excavations. These include pump stations, explosive magazines, workshops, crusher chambers, truck tips and ore passes.
