Local business support
OZ Minerals supports development of local businesses directly through contracts for mine-related services, mentoring and training initiatives. Indirectly our operations support local businesses through preferential purchase of local goods and services.
We are conscious that our operations are often the primary source of revenue for local businesses during operations. Hence, we focus our business development initiatives on transferable technologies, skills and building livelihoods that are sustainable post-mine closure. These proactive steps are in included in the OZ Minerals Local Employment and Business Support Management Standard.
Four local businesses commenced work at Prominent Hill in 2009.
