NRW Holdings has been appointed by Gascoyne Resources as the preferred mining contractor for the Dalgaranga Gold Project in the Murchison region in Western Australia.

NRW’s scope of works under this contract – valued at approximately $300 million – will include open pit mining, which involves drilling and blasting, of four pits over a six-year period.

“NRW is a highly respected mining contractor, with the mining experience required for the project with all key personnel and equipment available now, ensuring that we will be able to commence mining in March 2018 in accordance with the development plan.

“We look forward to working alongside NRW to ensure the successful development of the company’s Dalgaranga Gold Project,” Gascoyne Managing Director Mike Dunbar said.

For this project, NRW is going to utilise existing plant and equipment, with up to 200 workers on-site during peak construction.

“NRW has been involved with the Gascoyne team for some time through the early project studies and we look forward to working with Gascoyne on this exciting new major gold mine development,” NRW Managing Director Jules Pemberton said.
