Aveng Moolmans is one of the largest surface mining contractors in Africa, moving over 20 million tonnes of material each month. Experience in operating in remote and challenging locations, together with extensive resources, ensures delivery of a world-class mining service.

We offer a complete surface mining capability with over 40 years’ experience in both hard and soft rock environments, from short-term waste mining and bulk earthmoving to a complete and long-term mining solution.  In addition to drill, blast, load, haul and dump functions, Aveng Moolmans is well placed to provide mine planning, surveying, production scheduling and grade control services. Whatever the location we are able to mobilise quickly, arriving on site with the appropriate resources to establish and develop their operations.

The company currently works on a number of projects throughout Africa and has mined a range of commodities for a variety of reputable clients.

Aveng Moolmans owns and operates a diverse fleet of mining equipment to suit various operations and client requirements. This fleet includes 631 scrapers, which were frontline tools in the past with current requirements shifting its focus to the 100 tonne dump truck and 170/270 tonne excavator operations plus both reverse circulation and blast hole drill rigs that now form the backbone of its fleet. The equipment also includes 200 tonne trucks with 500 tonne shovels as loading tools. These machines are complemented by bulldozers, graders, front end loaders and a number of ancillary machines. To ensure maximum availability, utilisation and productivity, we have developed effective systems with regard to maintenance and cost-effectiveness. These systems come from years of experience, supplier interface and best practice.

We are OSHAS 18001:2007 and ISO 90001:2008 certified.

Aveng Moolmans is able to use synergies with other group companies to enhance procurement and logistics. This ultimately translates into a more effective and reliable mining partner for its clients. In terms of mining equipment, we are able to use continent-wide experience and relationships to shorten delivery periods, and to ensure a fleet selection best suited to a client’s specific requirements.
