SMS Mining has travelled a remarkable path to become the thriving business it is today. Richard Aucamp and Piet du Toit, both seasoned veterans of the mining industry with 25 years of experience, laid the foundation for the company. Their unwavering commitment to quality and value has been the driving force behind its steady growth.

In 2017, SMS Mining was born out of the founders' vision to create a company that truly adds value to the industry. Since then, we have gone from strength to strength. Our exceptional management team has successfully secured contracts with major mining houses in South Africa, propelling our underground and surface mining operations to new heights.

In 2022, we took a significant leap forward in our quest to become a leader in contract mining. Joining forces with Fledge Capital and African Rainbow Capital (ARC), we harnessed their expertise, strategic insights, and business acumen. This partnership has empowered us to offer a comprehensive suite of specialized services to the mining industry.

At SMS Mining, our management team boasts extensive experience in logistics and mining, each supported by their own formidable team. Together, we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table, adding tremendous value to our operations.
