Mining

Mining is one of the Northern Territory’s primary industries, with around 40 mining companies of various sizes operating out of the Northern Territory.

H&C is proud to work with Energy Resources of Australia (ERA), one of the nation’s largest and longest running uranium producers. Together we have partnered on a variety of projects, the most recent and news worthy being the Design and Construction of the Jabiru Nursery, the first rehabilitation project of the shut down strategy.

The nursery will be used to grow native trees and shrubs from seedlings collected in surrounding bushland. Once established these will be planted onsite during the rehabilitation process and will play an important role in providing fresh clean air, storing carbon, restoring biodiversity, and providing future habitat for wildlife.

The mining sector remains one of the most dangerous industries, and as such, requires the highest levels of performance and accountability in all areas.

H&C boasts a comprehensive Work Health Safety & Environmental Management Plan and strict processes, policies and procedures o are implemented into all areas of project planning and implementation.

These stringent procedures are followed by all our employees, as well as consultants, agents, contractors and suppliers. All H&C business principles must also be respected by our joint venture partners and non- controlled companies.
