AngloGold locks in GR Engineering for Sunrise Dam EPC contract

AngloGold's Sunrise Dam

GR Engineering has secured more work in the Western Australian gold industry, this time with AngloGold Ashanti.

Perth-based GR has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract at AngloGold’s Sunrise Dam gold mine.

The $31.3 million contract involves a brownfields upgrade to processing facilities at the site 220km northeast of Kalgoorlie in WA’s Goldfields region.

GR will design and construct a flotation and ultra-fine grind processing facility, with associated services upgrades to operate within the existing infrastructure in operation at Sunrise Dam.

Work on the contract will start immediately, with completion scheduled for June next year.

GR managing director Geoff Jones said the mining services company was pleased to be working with a top tier gold producer like AngloGold.

“GR Engineering looks forward to making a positive contribution to the Sunrise Dam gold mine, which has been in operation for more than 20 years, through the safe and successful delivery of this accretive brownfields project,” Jones said.

The work at Sunrise Dam adds to a series of contract wins for GR in the gold sector over the past year.

In April, Dacian Gold executed a $107 million EPC contract at the Mt Morgans gold project in WA with GR.

Gascoyne Resources signed a letter of intent (LOI) with GR for an EPC contract for a minerals processing plant at the Dalgaranga gold project in WA in March.

Last year, GR won a $12.5 million EPC contract for Eastern Goldfields’ 1.2Mtpa Davyhurst processing facility in WA.
