Watpac successfully mined mineral sands from two pit locations at the WRP mine site in Ouyen, Victoria. By using a combination of conventional trucks, excavators, scrapers and tractor scoops, Watpac increased the efficiency of the mine whilst minimising costs and environmental impacts. Watpac's mobile plant efficiently mined the topsoil, subsoil, overburden and ore at WRP at a rate of approximately one million BCM per month, exceeding targets.
