The Group is an ASX200 diversified global mining services group headquartered in Australia.
From our meagre beginning as a one-drill operation in Kalgoorlie, the Group has become one of the largest diversified global mining services companies.
The Group has built a portfolio of companies designed to provide a complete mining value chain throughout Australia, Africa and around the world.
Iduapriem Mine comprises the Iduapriem and Teberebie properties in a 110km2 concession and it is located in the Western Region of Ghana, some 70km north of the coastal city of Takoradi and about 10km south-west of the Goldfields Tarkwa mine. Iduapriem Mine is an open-pit mine and its processing facilities include a carbon in-pulp (CIP) plant with a gravity circuit. In 2018, Iduapriem Mine increased production 11% year on year to 254,000 oz, the mine’s highest production since 2004. The production increase was driven by key factor of mining deeper and higher-grade areas in the Teberebie pit where African Mining Services (AMS) was contracted to mine.
African Mining Services was awarded the mining services contract in February 2014 worth about 15 million US Dollars per year which is reviewed annually. Under the Mining Services contract, AMS is responsible for supplying all incidental goods, mining fleet and skilled labour necessary for the proper completion of the works and the performance of the contract.
AMS currently employs 357 people at the Iduapriem project with 47% of the workforce coming from the catchment areas and the host region and the remaining 53% being employees from the other regions of Ghana.
AMS has worked with respect to the environment and safety for its employees without affecting our ability to deliver AAIL required mining target KPIs.
