A modern
mining company


Carrapateena offers the potential of multi-decade production at low operating costs, with potential for further discoveries nearby. It’s situated relatively close to the necessary infrastructure and is in one of the safest mining jurisdictions in the world. We believe these features are highly attractive to potential partners to join with us in advancing the development of Carrapateena.

What we do

OZ Minerals purchased the Carrapateena copper-gold project in May 2011. This project comprised four exploration licences covering approximately 1,070 square kilometres in central South Australia on the eastern margin of the Gawler Craton. In April 2013, additional tenements were acquired from Straits Resources, bringing the total land holding to 3,624 square kilometres.

For further information on the project, please refer to the Carrapateena Project page.
