Strandline contracts Primero to build processing facilities at its Coburn mineral sands project in WA


Primero Group, a subsidiary of NRW Holdings, has been awarded a new contract to build the processing facilities at Strandline Resources’ Coburn mineral sands project in Western Australia.

The A$135 million contract will see Primero complete the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) of the processing facilities, including wet concentration plant and mineral separation plant.

Primero will work with specialist minerals sands engineer Mineral Technologies – a subsidiary of Downer Group – under a subcontract arrangement, integrating design and processing technology to deliver the turn-key solution.

Primero CEO Cameron Henry said the company looks forward to working with Strandline’s management team to safely and successfully deliver Coburn’s state-of-the-art processing facilities.

“The successful award of the project again demonstrates the technical ability and expanding capacity of the group to deliver projects of this scale and importance in the minerals processing sector,” he stated.

Project completion is planned for late 2022.
