Epiroc says it has won a large order for underground mining equipment from Shandong Gold Group Co., Ltd for use at three gold mines in China.
Shandong Gold Group, one of China’s largest gold mining companies, has ordered a fleet of mine trucks, loaders and drill- and rock reinforcement rigs to expand production at the Jiaojia, Xincheng and Sanshandao gold mines.
The order is valued at about SEK350 million ($34 million) and was booked in the December quarter of 2023.
Epiroc has supported the development of Shandong Gold Group with various underground mining equipment since 1986.
“We have a long-standing and productive partnership with Shandong Gold Group, and we are happy to continue supporting the company on its journey toward operations that are as safe and productive as possible,” Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO, said.
The ordered equipment includes the Minetruck MT2200 hauler, Scooptram ST1030 and Scooptram ST3.5 loaders, Boomer 282 face drilling rig, and Boltec S1K rock reinforcement rig.
