Narrow Vein Machinery For Hire
Minspares is based in Kalgoorlie, WA and is dedicated to supplying miners with superior narrow vein mining equipment, along with specialist advice and ongoing customer service. Our team has over 20 years of mining experience and can advise you on the right machinery for your project.
Narrow vein mining is a specialised industry focused on extracting high-value commodities like gold, silver and nickel as well as more common metals like tin and copper.
The technique used in narrow vein mining creates tunnel sizes that are small and precise. This means mining companies can accurately target the commodities they are searching for. Compared to other methods of mining, the operational costs involved in narrow vein mining are relatively low while productivity and the quality of the commodity remain high.

Our Narrow Vein Mining Machinery
While traditional large-scale mining has dominated the Australian mining scene, many companies are seeing the financial benefits of using smaller, more modern equipment. As a more precise method of mining, narrow vein mining can often produce a higher-grade commodity.
Narrow vein mining also requires much less and smaller additional equipment, like loaders. Drilling smaller tunnels mean the amount of rock and debris being removed is significantly less. All of this adds up to improve your bottom line.
All our narrow vein mining machinery is handpicked by our team of experts to ensure it is of the highest quality and will perform to expectations. Whether you are working on a small or large-scale project, Minspares has the equipment you need.
