Mining & Minerals

Mining and mineral export are cornerstones of Western Australia’s economy. Vertech’s industry-leading mining inspection, maintenance, and specialist access, combined with our client-driven approach, enables us to successfully deliver capital projects, maintenance and turnarounds (TARS) in the mining and minerals market sector for both inland and coast infrastructure.

Our high-performing teams consistently deliver and redefine industry best practices by drawing on our extensive knowledge of other sectors, cutting-edge technologies, and progressive methods.

By combining these elements, Vertech can maximise productivity and minimise client costs. This is further underpinned by passionate people with practical experience in project and program management, which allows us to offer a unique combination of specialised access, rope access, maintenance, and accredited inspection capabilities

Inland Mine Sites

Australia produces 19 useful minerals in significant amounts from over 350 operating mines, which account for 69 per cent of our export revenue. Iron ore exports remained Australia’s largest export, with robust demand for the steel-making commodity underpinning iron ore exports of $15.5 billion – up 52 per cent year-on-year.

Maintaining the processes, plants, and equipment that enable these mines to continue functioning effectively, efficiently, and safely is critical to the nation’s economic prosperity. As such, Vertech puts a strong focus on high mobility specialist maintenance and inspection services and technology innovation to support our customers.
