About Aquila

Projects - St Ives 1.jpg

Aquila Mining Pty Ltd, a privately owned and operated company headquartered in Western Australia, has been instrumental in advancing Paste-Fill Operations for leading mining firms across Australasia for the past two decades.

Established in July 2003, Aquila Mining initially focused on providing mining backfill services to underground mines in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia. However, its success led to rapid expansion throughout Australasia. This expansion prompted Aquila Mining to diversify its services, branching into materials processing, civil construction, and specialized plant and equipment hire.

We pride ourselves in delivering cost effective results through our capable and dedicated teams, best practice systems, processes and investing into strategically developed assets.

Aquila Mining provides national expertise and services with Underground Mine Fill, Raw Materials Processing, Civil Works, Plant and Specialised Equipment Hire.
