Atlas Iron Pty Ltd has awarded a contract extension to BGC Contracting and the company will continue delivering various mining services at the Mt Webber Iron Ore Project in Western Australia.

“BGC’s long standing relationship with Atlas Iron has seen the two companies work collaboratively over the better part of the last decade. During this time, we have continuously and reliably met Atlas Iron’s safety and production targets.

“We look forward to continuing our work with Atlas’ team in the years ahead,” BGC Contracting Chief Executive Officer Greg Heylen said.

BGC will continue providing mining services until June 2022, up to the end of Mt Webber’s operational life. The company will be delivering various services including drilling, blasting, loading, hauling, dumping and mineral processing for the mine.

The Mt Webber Iron Ore Project is located approximately 230 kilometres south-southeast of Port Hedland. The mine began operating in July 2014 and currently has a production rate of about 9Mtpa.
