Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions



Sandvik is a global, high-technology engineering group providing solutions that enhance productivity, profitability and sustainability for the mining, and infrastructure industries.

Sandvik Mining and Construction Tanzania Limited, is one of the first major OEMs to establish a base in Tanzania in 2000. Since then, Sandvik has established its customer base with all the major mining companies in Tanzania mainly in and around the Lake Zone Area. These Customers include among others AngloGold Ashanti’s Geita Gold Mine, Barminco’s AUMS, Barrick Gold’s Bulyanhulu Mine and North Mara Mine, and Shanta Gold Mine and Taifa Mining formerly known as Caspian.

Geita Gold Mine together with its main production partner AUMS, have ordered several Sandvik “Toro” LH621i Loaders and TH663i Dump Trucks for use at Geita Gold Mine. The new equipment which is manufactured in Turku, Finland, has already started to be delivered to site.   

Both Geita Gold Mine and AUMS and part of larger global operations and have Global relationship agreements with Sandvik but have been using Competitor Loaders and Trucks in Tanzania. Sandvik Tanzania was only supplying underground development drills and production drills and Sandvik drilling consumables.

Sandvik operates a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) onsite and a drilling consumables contract support.

Sandvik has carried out detailed studies with the LH621i and TH663i combination confirmed that we are able to save Geita Gold Mine operations by up to 30% on operational costs relating to ore movement in the segment of our truck and loader operations.

It suffices to say the loader and truck combination covers the entire customer value chain based on extensive investments in research and development, customer insights and deep knowledge of industrial processes and digital solutions.

The Fuel-efficient Stage II / Tier 2 Volvo engines installed in these Units, offer long engine lifetime and low cost of ownership. The loader and truck’s low weight, efficient engine technology, fast ramp speeds for short cycle times and up to 25% lower fuel consumption compared to competition, result in low cost per hauled ton. Reduced fuel consumption also supports reduction of CO2 emissions.


The LH621i Loader was delivered to site automation ready.

With this combination of the Toro LH621i and the Toro TH663i Dump Truck Sandvik moves the Tonnage !
