Pil­bara Min­er­als has awarded an­other raft of con­tracts as the ramp-up of its $234 mil­lion Pil­gan­goora lithium-tan­ta­lum project takes shape.

The com­pany an­nounced on Mon­day last week the ap­proval of the sec­ond stage of a $148 mil­lion con­tract for RCR Tom­lin­son to build a pro­cess­ing plant on site.

NRW Hold­ings, which won the bulk earth­works con­tract for Pil­gan­goora last month, has started clear­ing and site works ahead of ma­jor con­struc­tion ac­tiv­i­ties in Au­gust.

Pil­bara Min­er­als said a joint ven­ture be­tween Nja­mal Ser­vices and Pil­bara Re­source Group had won a con­tract for site works as­so­ci­ated with stage two of the work­ers’ camp, which would see the ini­tial 60-room in­stal­la­tion be ex­panded to cater for 300 peo­ple.

Ac­tion In­dus­trial Cater­ing, in a joint ven­ture with Nja­mal Ser­vices, has been hired on a three-year con­tract to pro­vide camp man­age­ment, cater­ing and main­te­nance ser­vices for the camp.

Pil­bara Min­er­als is tar­get­ing the com­mis­sion­ing of Pil­gan­goora in March next year, with first ship­ments planned from the sec­ond quar­ter. Pil­gan­goora will even­tu­ally pro­duce 330,000 tonnes a year of spo­dumene con­cen­trate.
