A truck for the long haul

A truck for the long haul

Sunrise Dam, 220 kilometres northeast of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, began as an open pit mine in 2007. Today, contractor Barminco sources ore exclusively from the rapidly expanding underground gold mine. Barminco has invested in a fleet of new Sandvik TH663 trucks that transport more ore while consuming less fuel.
