An emerging base and precious metals producer with Australian based mining and processing operations.

Who we are

Round Oak Minerals Pty Ltd (Round Oak) is an emerging base metals and precious metals producer with several Australian based mining and processing operations. Round Oak Minerals is a subsidiary of Washington H. Soul Pattinson & Co Ltd (WHSP) which itself is an investment house with investments in a diverse portfolio of assets across a range of industries.

Over the last twelve months Round Oak has undergone significant growth with the acquisition of mines and advanced projects. With the growth and changed focus of our business away from being purely a copper producer to a base and precious metals producer, the company recently changed its name from CopperChem Pty Ltd to Round Oak Minerals Pty Ltd. The new Company name provides a link back to where our Company started at its Great Australia Mine (part of Cloncurry Operations) which is located on Round Oak station in north-west Queensland.

Round Oak has open cut and underground mines and associated processing facilities operating across Australia. The company also has a number of advanced projects together with significant exploration tenement holdings in north-west Queensland, north-east Victoria and in the northern goldfields region of Western Australia.

A rebranding strategy is currently being undertaken in support of repositioning our Company as a significant Australian base metals producer. The recent acquisition of the Jaguar operation and the Stockman project combined with the development of the Mt Colin underground copper mine and Wallace gold projects are key elements of this strategy.
