About Downer Mining

Downer’s Mining division has been successfully delivering contract mining and civil earthmoving services to an impressive list of global clients for over 90 years. It is now one of Australia’s leading diversified mining contractors, with around 3,500 employees working across more than 50 sites in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, South America and Southern Africa (view our current operations map here). 

We support our coal and metalliferous mining clients at all stages of the mining lifecycle, with a wide range of services including:

Our current client base comprises a mix of local and international clients, including: Anglo American, AngloGold Ashanti, BHP Billiton, BMA Coal, Codelco, CrocGold, Debswana Diamond Company, EnergyAustralia, Fortescue Metals Group, Idemitsu Australia Resources, Jellinbah Group, Karara Mining, MMG, Newcrest, Ok Tedi Mining, Peabody Energy, Rio Tinto, Solid Energy, Stanwell Corporation, Swakop Uranium and Yancoal Australia.

While we pride ourselves on the excellence of our work, we recognise that it is also our industry-leading approach to sustainable development that gives us a competitive edge. For us, sustainable development means having an unwavering focus on Zero Harm and a commitment to environmental sustainability, as well as being a valued member of the minerals industry and of the communities in which we operate.

Our non-financial sustainability performance against key health, safety and environment (HSE) and social criteria is reported annually in our Sustainable Development Report. Each of our operations reports quarterly against these pre-determined metrics, a summary of which is provided in our annual Sustainable Development Scorecard
