Gold Rush


Burma Plant Hire provides powerful solutions to the mining and construction industry across South Africa’s major centres where mining in particular is concentrated.

With a wide range of low-hour modern equipment, Burma is perfectly placed to work alongside contract miners of any size, or even directly with mining houses, to offer services which include the machines, operators, trainers and well-experienced teams to provide the all-essential support in SHEQ, maintenance and supervision.

At a time when the gold price is showing one of its strongest global pricing rallies, Burma Plant Hire has entered the fray to provide services to the gold industry and in so doing, increase their diversification across a broader range of commodities.

Whilst gold glitters and shines in our warm South African sun as one of the early commodities mined here, our country is now the source of such an array of different valuable commodities and resources. Burma already operate equipment in manganese, iron ore and coal, now also establishing a presence in gold mining operations.

“It is part of our strategy to carefully ensure that our company focuses on the key commodities within South Africa and so the move into providing equipment into gold mining is yet another important achievement for Burma Plant Hire,” says Theuns Burger – MD.

Burma Plant Hire has operations in the heart of the mining hubs within the country and are ready to understand your needs better and to offer a solution to increase uptime and reliability on your mine, which improves production.

Burma Plant Hire’s Sales and Operations Manager, Chrisna Basson, confirms the power of an all-round service. “Our focus is on delivering a well-balanced start-to-finish service for our customers. Machines that are well-maintained to one of the best standards in the industry still require excellent operators. These operators need training and supervision. They also need to be educated in the most efficient and safe operating practices. We commit to not just providing equipment, but to be an essential on-site partner.”

Selecting an equipment and contracting partner is essential to the success of your business and Burma Plant Hire offers that vital and reliable support.
