Our Partnership with OZ Minerals

The Playford Trust in partnership with OZ Minerals offers an Honours scholarship in Geoscience, Mining Engineering or Chemical Engineering at any one of the three South Australian universities.

OZ Minerals is a modern, world-class mining company, based in South Australia. It owns and operates Prominent Hill – a high quality copper-gold mine, and Carrapateena – a copper-gold advanced exploration project.

Formed in 2008, the company purchased the Carrapateena exploration project in 2011. In 2012 it expanded its Prominent Hill operation to include underground mining at the Ankata Underground mine. In 2015, a second underground mine, Malu Underground, was commissioned. The underground operations are now integrated from an operational perspective.

As Australia’s third largest copper producer, with quality assets, a healthy cash balance and no debt, OZ Minerals is ideally positioned for global growth.
