Sandvik has won a contract to supply 14 LHDs (load-haul-dumpers) for the initial production phase of Newcrest Mining’s Cadia East mine in the NSW, Australia.

Cadia East is one of the world’s largest gold deposits. The mine will be the deepest panel cave in the world and Australia’s largest underground mine.

The Sandvik LH517s will be deployed in Cadia East’s initial production phase (Lift 1), and are being delivered between now and October 2012.

They will be equipped for fully autonomous operation in conjunction with Sandvik’s underground mining AutoMine system, which is currently used at Newcrest’s Ridgeway Deeps project.

Tim Redmond, Sandvik Mining and Construction’s underground mining sales manager explained: “Newcrest's Cadia Valley operation is now among the largest users of Sandvik LHDs globally.”

Service and support for the new loaders is being carried out by Sandvik’s Orange service centre which is based close to the mine, plus an onsite product support team in the Cadia Valley.
