Doug Hood Mining

The Company

Doug Hood Mining Ltd has established itself as one of New Zealand’s largest and most successful opencast mining, quarrying and civil engineering contractors.

Our vision is “To be acknowledged by the New Zealand mining and civil construction sectors as the preferred service provider and by current and prospective employees as the preferred employer”.

This focus empowers the company to complete each project on time, to specification, and to meet and exceed interested party expectations.

Established by the Late Doug Hood in 1953, and incorporated in 1966, the company was initially focused on agricultural land development before progressing to earthworks contracting on large hydro-electric power projects in the 1970’s and large mining projects in the mid-1980’s.

The light civil and agricultural side of the business was sold in 2003, while the mining division was expanded to take advantage of the buoyant market at the time.

From 1985 to 2019 we completed nine large gold and coal mining contracts involving 74 million m3, and from 1994 to 2019 civil engineering contracts worth $43 million.
