OZ Minerals is an Australian based mining company with a focus on copper. The Company owns and operates the high quality Prominent Hill copper-gold mine in South Australia and is maximising value from the Prominent Hill operation and from exploration in the highly prospective region.
In May 2011, OZ Minerals purchased the Carrapateena copper project in South Australia, which is a similar style of deposit to Prominent Hill. This project is in the exploration phase, but has the potential to be in production by 2017–2018 should exploration and studies prove successful.
OZ Minerals has a strong commitment to exploration and the active identification of new opportunities. OZ Minerals has a strong balance sheet, a team of highly skilled mining industry professionals and a commitment to our core values of Respect, Integrity, Action and Results.
