Open Cast Mining

We are making available the continent’s rich natural resources. We are a responsible company, as well as a dynamic one, and apply strict environmental standards.

PW Mining was formed in the mid 1990’s to broaden the scope of services provided by the company. We are firmly established as one of the premier contract miming companies in the African mining industry, having acquired considerable experience in surface mining in a range of minerals.

The company has focused on mining for Gold, but has also executed projects in the Bauxite, Rutile and Diamond sectors. We have top class competencies in all aspects of contract mining, including site clearance, overburden removal, drilling, blasting, load and haul, ROM pad management and crusher loading.
