OZ Minerals contracts Epiroc & Mobilaris for Carrapateena mine digitalisation

Epiroc Australia and Mobilaris have announced that they have been contracted by OZ Minerals to deploy the Mobilaris Mining Intelligence™ (MMI) information management system for the digitisation of its new Carrapateena copper-gold underground operations in South Australia. The digitalisation aims to increase production, efficiency and safety.

Working with Mobilaris and Epiroc’s underground specialists, OZ Minerals has developed a detailed plan for the staged rollout of selected MMI features across 2019. Mobilaris Mining Intelligence™ being an open and technology agnostic platform, has already delivered digitalisation to mines globally and is well suited to the operating environment at Carrapateena.

“OZ Minerals aims to be a modern mining company, and the partnership with Epiroc and Mobilaris will foster enhanced safety and facilitate advanced mining methodologies,” says Myles Johnston, General Manager, Carrapateena. General Manager Epiroc Australia, Terry Browne said he is “excited by the opportunity to add value and depth to Epiroc’s automation offering.”

In Australia, support for MMI will be provided through Mobilaris regional support based in Australia as well as the new Epiroc’s Regional Application Centre in Perth.
