DSI Stabilizes Australia’s Mine of the YearDSI At the 2007 Annual Australian Mining Prospect Awards gala ceremony, the title “Australian Mine of the Year 2007” was awarded to Awaba Mine.
Located south of Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia, Awaba Mine is an underground operation run by Centennial Coal. Each year, 73 employees produce around 740,000t of coal that is sold both to a local power station and on the export market.
The Mine was awarded the title because its life had been successfully extended by more than two years, allowing the recovery of an additional two million tonnes of salable coal.
The extension of coal exploitation in the Awaba Mine was made possible by innovations and an extension of the mine to which DSI contributed.
DSI Australia supplied high-quality and inno - vative Mining Products to the mine. The delivery included products such as rock bolts, anchor plates and resin cartridges with a maximum degree of security as well as quick and easy installation procedures.
In accordance with its slogan “Local Presence – Global Competence”, DSI delivered the necessary products and systems just in time from its production facility in Bennetts Green, in close vicinity of the coal mine. DSI Australia is looking forward to continuing its support for Centennial Coal by supplying important mining products in the future.
