The Team

Northern Goldfields Earthmoving is owned and managed by Wayne Linke and his wife Martha. They oversee the business operations and employ a team that includes thoroughly experienced and highly competent earthworks supervisors, expert machine operators, and a cook.

This team has worked together for many years on NGE projects and ongoing contracts.


Industry Experience

Wayne started in road construction as a grader operator in 1998, regularly subcontracting to BGC, Brierty, Pavement Technology, Highway Construction and Airport Management Services.

Projects included the construction of Kalbarri Airport and several airstrips in the Laverton and Warburton Shires. Wayne’s responsibilities included managing water carts, rollers, road trains; maintaining levels to finished design; and managing densities and compactions to meet all Main Roads specifications. He then progressed to become a final trim grader operator.

Later, as a road train operator, Wayne carted gravel for the Shire of Laverton and Brierty. Contracting at Telfer Mine, he transported freight for Nexus Freight Perth, carted grain in Esperance and carted gravel on Barrow Island for Ertech.


Local Expertise

The Northern Goldfields Earthmoving team are familiar with the specific local challenges of remoteness, heat and safety. As a result, the company is proudly self-sufficient and extremely well prepared.

NGE has the latest technology satellite phones and can order parts as required. Long standing partnerships with our providers and delivery agents means minimal downtime for clients.

NGE is proud to have held the maintenance grading contract for the last eight years in the Shire of Wiluna and continues to provide safe and well-maintained roads.


Health and Safety

Northern Goldfields Earthmoving’s highest priority is workplace health and safety. Our goal is a workplace free of incidents and injuries, and this impeccable standard has been maintained since day one.

When working on a project, NGE conducts daily onsite safety meetings that in turn help to define and refine safe workplace systems and processes.
