Epiroc, a leading productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and construction industries, has won a large order for underground mining equipment from Shandong Gold Group Co., Ltd for use at three gold mines in China. 


Shandong Gold Group, one of China’s largest gold mining companies, has ordered a fleet of mine trucks, loaders, and drill- and rock reinforcement rigs to expand production at the Jiaojia, Xincheng, and Sanshandao gold mines.


The order is valued at about MSEK 350 and was booked in the fourth quarter 2023.


Epiroc has supported the development of Shandong Gold Group with various underground mining equipment since 1986.


“We have a long-standing and productive partnership with Shandong Gold Group, and we are happy to continue supporting the company on its journey toward operations that are as safe and productive as possible,” says Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO.
