About the Wombat

Inspired by the Copper Wombat

The Copper River Group’s official mascot is inspired by the wombat: a small, short-legged marsupial typically found in Australia. Using their powerful arms and legs, wombats would dig burrow systems for food and shelter.


In the 1860s, wombats became an important friend to copper miners. While creating their burrows, wombats threw copper ore to the surface. These holes helped identify some of the largest and most profitable copper mines in Australia.

The wombat became a dependable and trusted resource for miners, and The Copper River Group will bring those same qualities to your technology and operations challenges. Contact us today.
