About Murchison Grade Control

Murchison Grade Control Pty Ltd (MGC) commenced operations in June 1988 at Peak Hill Gold Mine in Western Australia as a Specialist Trenching Contractor for the Grade Control Sampling of Open Pit Gold Mines. Another operation commenced in Mt. Magnet to provide services to Western Mining Corporation Ltd at Hill 50 Gold Mine and other mines in the surrounding area. MGC has now provided services to over 100 operating Gold & lateritic Nickel Mines in Australia and in Ghana, West Africa.

Ditch Witch® Trenching Equipment for Open Pit Grade Control was pioneered by the Company's Director Warwick Archer and Geologist Adrian Griffin at Marvel Loch Gold Mine Western Australia in 1984.The success of this technique led to widespread use in the Goldfields of Western Australia and Northern Territory. Murchison Grade Control Pty Ltd was founded in 1988 to provide these services as a dedicated Contractor. The Ditch Witch® sample provides an excellent high density continuous sample across strike enhancing visual control and sub-surface exposure for mapping. Collection of the finely ground, well mixed sample is simple, fast and labour efficient and requires little additional laboratory preparation.

Trenching equipment uses the Chain or Boom with a continuous cutting chain, or the Earth Saw, a rotating wheel with tungsten carbide teeth. Chain trenching is suitable for soft (free dig) oxide ores where greater depth is required. Earth Saws are capable of digging in tougher ground conditions than the chain without varying trench depth.
