What is Mining Contractors Insurance?

Mining contractor insurance and mining subcontractor insurance is a form of packaged coverage that caters specifically to contractors who offer their products and services into the mining industry. Organisations in this space are often required to meet stringent insurance coverage guidelines set by larger corporations when tendering or signing contractual agreements.

What Coverages are Available?

We consider each client’s operations, activities, size and contractual requirements to arrange specialised coverage that make sense. See below for a brief snapshot of the coverages available to mining contractors and mining subcontractors:
