Epiroc and Newcrest deepen strategic partnership with holistic, value-driven approach to mining

October 3, 2023

Epiroc has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Newcrest, one of the world’s largest gold mining companies, for a new strategic partnership. This newest collaboration aims to take a holistic approach towards the entire mining process at several of Newcrest’s mines, supported by Epiroc’s leading portfolio of automation, digitalization, and electrification solutions. 

“The mining industry’s future will be forged through partnerships, not solitary efforts” says Tony Sprague, Group Manager Directional Studies and Innovation at Newcrest.


The MoU was made possible thanks to the long and successful partnership between the two companies, as well as a strong alignment when it comes to safety, sustainability, and innovation. The collaboration spans several of Newcrest’s mines and include Epiroc’s portfolio within automation, digitalization, and electrification solutions.


“This clearly marks the next phase of our already strong partnership with Newcrest. With a solution-focused and value-driven mindset, our shared ambition is to develop future solutions and implement our proven technologies in Newcrest’s operations”, says Lars Bergkvist, Senior Customer Success Manager at Epiroc’s Underground division.


Newcrest is the largest gold producer listed on the Australian Securities Exchange with operating mines located in Australia, Canada and Papua New Guinea.


“Both of our companies believe that collaborative partnerships are the best way to drive progress and ensure successful implementation of system-level innovations to boost safety, cost-efficiency, and productivity. This really is about creating win-win outcomes for everyone involved” says Sarah Hoffman, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Epiroc’s Underground division.
