Portable Mining Sites

Portable mining sites are used every day across Australia and offer a range of operational benefits.

You can also choose from a variety of different designs to suit your particular needs and requirements. Interested in finding out more about the advantages of portable mining sites? Check out this blog from the team at MACS Australia.  Let’s start with the basics.

What is a portable mining site? 

A portable mining site is a structure that is set up on a semi-permanent basis to support a team for the duration of their mining operations. As the name suggests, they can be set up and then relocated as needed. The advantage being that there’s no complicated construction required. This makes them ideal for the mining industry where crews constantly need to relocate based on the demand for work.  Now that we’ve covered what a portable mining site is, let’s look at why they may be a good fit for your operation.  

  • Easy to set up and take down

  Portable mining camps are pre-made and ready to go. They arrive pre-fabricated with everything that your team needs so there’s no need to waste time on building and constructing a camp yourself. Just as they are easy to set up, they are just as easy to disassemble. This means you can easily relocate once a job has finished, or work in a particular area is no longer required.   

  • Cost effective

  The cost-effectiveness of portable mining sites makes them particularly advantageous. Not only will you be able to save money on construction and reassembly, but you’ll save on rent fees and expensive transport costs. This is key for both small and large-scale operations that are looking to limit overheads and boost profitability. Expect projects to come in on time and within budget as a result.  

  • Comfort

  Portable mining camps provide for all your needs and offer a great level of comfort for workers. This extends to everything from recreation areas and kitchens to training and administration facilities. High quality fittings and features can also be included to boost livability. Whether it’s TV and entertainment units, amenities, full-service kitchens or anything else, know that you’ll be well prepared for short and long-term projects.
