Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT) has awarded PYBAR Mining Services a contract for works on the Mt Lyell copper mine near Queenstown, TAS.

Under this contract, PYBAR will rehabilitate 4.4 kilometres of Mt Lyell’s 40-year-old main decline down to level 18. Works are expected to take approximately three to four months.

“We are delighted to be working with CMT to rehabilitate the Mt Lyell decline and look forward to forming a collaborative partnership with the client and building on our relationship with the local community,” PYBAR CEO Brendan Rouse said.

Peter Walker, CMT’s General Manager of the Mt Lyell mine said that the company is pleased to be working with PYBAR, with their excellent reputation in the mining industry as well as their experience to complete works under the required standards.

“This work is essential to bring a relatively old decline up to modern ground support standards and we are confident PYBAR will do this work safely and on time,” Mr Walker said.
