With high growth in mining investment and production, the mining sector has been the largest contributor to growth over the past decade.
Demand for Australian resources increased strongly over the past decade, driven by strong economic growth in emerging economies.
Increased capital expenditure in the resources sector saw mining capital expenditure in Australia reach record levels to be almost $95 billion by the end of 2012-13.

Barcode and GPS Tracking to Track and Manage Materials for Mining & Construction Project
Country or Region: Australia
Leighton Contractors is one of Australia’s leading contracting and project development groups.
The company services clients across a range of industries and sectors including resources, construction,
telecommunications, energy, infrastructure, and facility management.
Leighton Contractors was awarded a structural, mechanical and piping contract for the Brockman 4 Mine, an
Iron ore mine located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The scope of the project included significant construction and fabrication work. Material Tracking and Management was critical for this project especially since the items were coming from a number of Fabricators. Another important issue was the management of specific cost information.
The Trackem solution allowed Leighton Contractors to track, control and monitor their fabricators progress to better manage their project. The solution also provided specific fields focused reports in the Track’em software to enable Leighton Contractors to successfully track and manage their cost codes and rates for different materials.
Key Benefits of Track’em to this project
