Major order for Sandvik underground equipment from Evolution Mining for Australian mines

Sandvik has received a major underground mining equipment order from Australian-based Evolution Mining. The order was booked in the second quarter and valued at approximately SEK 300 million. Deliveries are scheduled through Q2 2025.

The order includes Sandvik’s advanced underground loaders, trucks and development drills, to be implemented in different mines in Australia. “We are very pleased that we continue to be a trusted partner to Evolution Mining and that we strengthen our partnership further as they renew big part of their fleet,” says Mats Eriksson, President of Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions.

Evolution’s principal underground operations in Australia are the recently acquired Northparkes (80%) copper-gold mine in NSW, the Ernest Henry (100%) copper-gold mine in Queensland, and the Mungari (100%) gold mine in Western Australia. Sandvik will deliver Toro™ TH663i trucks and Toro™ LH621i loaders to optimise operational efficiency and support ongoing mine development initiatives at Ernest Henry. Mungari Operations will receive Toro™ TH663i and Toro™ TH551i trucks, Toro™ LH517i loaders and two Sandvik DD422i development drills. Evolution is also integrating a Toro™ LH514 loader into the Northparkes fleet.

Matt O’Neill, Chief Operating Officer, Evolution Mining emphasised the importance of maintaining a modern, reliable and productive fleet across operations to optimise performance and production reliability. “Sandvik’s proven products have consistently delivered results, providing the case for this renewal program,” O’Neill said. “The deployment of these units over the coming year will ensure a seamless transition and continued operational excellence.”

“Our collaboration with Evolution Mining extends beyond equipment supply to include automation systems, digital products, rock tools, parts and service offerings,” said Wayne Scrivens, Vice President Sales Area Australia and New Zealand at Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions. “We are committed to supporting Evolution Mining in achieving its operational goals and look forward to further strengthening our partnership.”
