Macmahon named mining contractor for Anglo American’s Dawson South mine


Mining giant Anglo American has selected Macmahon Holdings Limited to provide surface mining services for its Dawson Mine in Queensland at the Dawson South operations.

Macmahon’s CEO and Managing Director Michael Finnegan said the new surface mining contract, which kicks-off July 2021, will see the company generate around $200 million in revenue over the 3 year term.

“We are very pleased to be selected for the Dawson South operation by Anglo American, a leading global mining company,” Mr Finnegan said.

“We look forward to working very closely with our new client to ensure a smooth transition period and continuity of safe operations. This new project further strengthens our growing east coast presence.”

Dawson South forms part of the Dawson Mine, an open cut metallurgical coal mine, which is a joint venture between Anglo American and Japan’s Mitsui Group.
