Big Yellow was formed in 2021 to meet a gap in the market where small to medium sized mining enterprises require a mining services company that also provides the leadership, technical expertise and management they need.


What differentiates us from other mining servicing companies is that we are a ‘people business’. We’re passionate about leadership, our people, our culture, whilst fostering genuine partnerships with our clients and suppliers.

We have just surpassed the 12 month mark of our 4 year open pit gold mining contract in Mount Magnet, and are seeking an experienced Maintenance Supervisor to commence in July/August.
