NRW subsidiary wins $40m works package for Telfer gold mine in WA

Monica Gameng   |   February 20, 2017

A $40 million drill and blast contract has been awarded to NRW Holding’s wholly-owned subsidiary Action Drill and Blast Pty Ltd (ADB) for services on Newcrest Mining’s Telfer gold mine in Western Australia.

“Having proven to be very successful in other commodities it is pleasing to see Action Drill and Blast establish itself further in the gold sector,” said NRW Managing Director Jules Pemberton.

The 66-month contract was awarded by the project’s head contractor Macmahon Holding Limited, and this is ADB’s second project in the gold sector – following the $110 million contract for works on Altura Mining’s Pilgangoora lithium project.

The Telfer gold mine is located approximately 400-kilometres from Port Hedland in the Pilbara region, with a production of 462,461 ounces of gold in the 2016 financial year.
