Action Drill & Blast wins coal contracts with Glencore, Macmahon

The Collinsville mine

Action Drill & Blast (ADB), a subsidiary of NRW Holdings, has been awarded several mining contracts worth a combined $57 million.

The contracts include a mix of new awards and extensions in the coal industry.

ADB will provide drilling services for Idemitsu Australia at the Boggabri and Muswellbrook mines in New South Wales, for Glencore at the Collinsville mine in Queensland, and for contractor Macmahon Holdings at the Byerwen mine in Queensland.

The mining services business will also deliver drill and blast services for Golding Contractors at the Broadleas mine in Queensland.

“The award of the above new contracts and extensions further establishes Action Drill & Blast as a leading contractor in the Australian coal mining industry, building on Action’s acquisition of Hughes Drilling in late 2016,” an NRW announcement said.

NRW was yesterday named as the preferred mining contractor for Gascoyne Resources at the Dalgaranga gold operation in Western Australia.
