NRW Holdings' subsidiary, Action Drill & Blast (ADB), has secured several mining contracts with a combined value of $57 million. The contracts are a mix of new as well as extension agreements in the coal industry.

The company will be delivering drill and/or blast services to the following developments:

  • Boggabri and Muswellbrook mines in New South Wales for Idemitsu
  • Collinsville mine in Queensland for Glencore
  • Byerwen mine in Queensland for Macmahon Holdings
