Altura Mining has awarded NRW Holdings a five-year contract to perform mining, drilling and blasting services at its Pilgangoora Mine.
Under the agreement, NRW will develop mine haul roads and will construct the mining infrastructure required for the works, including the Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) and Run of Mine (ROM) area. It will also perform drill and blast services.
Altura said mobilisation is expected to commence next month, following statutory approval of the Mining Proposal.
“Up to 60 NRW personnel will be employed on site, and NRW will work with the local Njamal indigenous communities to offer employment and subcontract participation,” Altura said in a statement to the ASX.
“The terms of the contract have been agreed, and the formal execution of the contract will take place in the coming days.”
