About Us

Round Minerals Pty Ltd (Round Oak) is an emerging Australian base and precious metals producer. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Washington H. Soul Pattinson & Co Ltd (WHSP) an investment house with a diverse portfolio of assets across a range of industries.

Over recent years Round Oak has undergone significant growth, with the acquisition of mines expanding the businesses resource portfolio adding zinc and gold projects to its existing portfolio of copper assets. With this expansion into new markets and the changed focus of our business from being purely a copper producer, the company changed its name to Round Oak Minerals Pty Ltd (formerly Copperchem Pty Ltd).

Round Oak operates both underground and open pit mining operations in north-west Queensland (copper and gold), the northern goldfields region of Western Australia (zinc and copper), and in South Australia (gold). Round Oak also has an advanced underground copper-zinc project in north-eastern Victoria as well as significant exploration holdings adjacent to our current operations and projects.

We strive to empower our people to deliver sustained business growth and drive success. At Round Oak we value diversity and encourage the development of all employees to support the continued performance and growth of our operations and development of new projects.
