Thiess wins an­other Le­in­ster con­tract

The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS: THE CONTRACTORS -

CIMIC Group’s Thiess has locked in a 24-month con­tract ex­ten­sion at BHP Nickel West’s Le­in­ster un­der­ground mine in WA.

The $190 mil­lion con­tract com­prised a full range of un­der­ground min­ing services and equip­ment to sup­port the mine’s lat­eral de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing load and haul, shotcret­ing, ca­ble bolt­ing and full fleet main­te­nance.

“We have a deep un­der­stand­ing of the mine and our team is well placed to help sup­port its next phase of de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion,” Thiess man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Dou­glas Thomp­son said.

Thiess first com­menced work at Le­in­ster in 2016, when its team ex­ca­vated 610 me­tres of hor­i­zon­tal de­vel­op­ment.
