Many mining companies around the world have a business model that includes contractors for an entire mining cycle, or a portion of it. Contract miners allow companies to equip or re-equip mines with restricted capital budgets. Using contractors can provide a number of advantages to mine owners. They offer economies of scale and scope through access to capital equipment and human resources, both in mining and in technical areas such as mine management, plant operations, mine planning, and materials handling.
To bid and win new mining contracts, contract miners must continuously evolve to remain competitive. The equipment they operate is a crucial evaluation criterion by which mining companies award a given contract. Newer models of equipment with better fuel efficiencies enable fuel savings to be passed on to the client, putting the contract miner in a better position to win tender bids. With that being said, acquiring new mining equipment is capital intensive, and many contract miners are not in a position to be able to justify such an expenditure.
