The courier service contract commenced on 3rd February 2020 to deliver samples from the Carrapateena Mine site directly to the analysis laboratory, Bureau Veritas in Whyalla.
The service freights samples from the underground mining areas (Geology samples) and processing plant operations samples (Metallurgical samples) for a same day delivery. This allows the technical departments of the Carrapateena mine to respond promptly to the results of those samples, optimising operations to maximise returns.
The two successful applicants Stanley Wingfield and Nigel Wilson are employed fulltime, on a rotating roster to provide this 7 days a week service. Stanley and Nigel operate the Kokatha Mining Services courier truck and are enjoying the roles, and making a good name for our association through their excellent service and professional, easy manner.
