All Lifting PNG takes part in multi-million dollar mining vehicle recovery

During operations at an open cut mine in Papua New Guinea, a EX801 cat machine weighing approximately 300 tonne and valued at $12 million, slid down a cliff. Amazingly the operator of the machine walked away with only a few scratches.

Due to the steep ground angle, the rescue operation of the EX801 required the removal of a large amount of dirt before the recovery could be attempted. The recovery was a massive team effort from specialists including mine management and operations, crane operators, emergency response and All Lifting.
