Mining Services

Jumbo

Commencing in 2014, Pit N Portal’s Mining Services has grown to become a provider of comprehensive mining services to clients across Western Australia.

We are able to offer a range of services ranging from maintained equipment through to full service contracts under various contract arrangements which are tailored to each project and the client.

We are committed to safe and efficient production, which is highlighted by our safety records including 1,000+ days LTI free at an Alliance contract near Southern Cross, WA.

Our strength is driven from our ability to supply, maintain and operate our own mining fleet on behalf of our clients and partners which leads to higher efficiency and lower costs for your business.
