OZ Minerals - Ankarta


"OZ Minerals' Prominent Hill copper-gold mine is now into its third successful year of operation.  Prominent Hill produces high quality copper concentrates for export and domestic consumption.

The operation, located 650 kilometres north west of Adelaide and 130 kilometres south east of Coober Pedy, is comprised of an open pit mine, a grinding and flotation processing plant, a permanent village and a haulage road, power line and bore field.  The Ankata underground mine commenced production in early 2012."

The Whitham Media crew flew up to Prominent Hill in mid 2012 to capture on location shots both above and underground.   We worked directly with the Project Manager to design and create an accurate animation, which helps explain the sub-level open stoping process.
