Barminco wins $100m Hindustan Zinc contract

Barminco has been awarded a $100 million underground mining services contract from Hindustan Zinc at the Rampura Agucha mine in India.

The three-and-a-half year contract involves the extension of development works that were being provided under a recently completed contract.

It also includes the addition of production work in the Barminco-developed area of the mine.

Barminco, which was acquired by Ausdrill last year, has operated at the Rampura Agucha mine since late 2016.

Ausdrill managing director Mark Norwell commented, “The continuation of services at Rampura Agucha is further endorsement of the Barminco acquisition and the professional service our businesses have been providing to our customers.”

Under the contract, which Barminco will start immediately, Hindustan Zinc will provide capital equipment and consumables.

Barminco chief executive officer Paul Muller commented on the extension of operations with the expanded scope to include production works.

“We look forward to deepening the relationship we have built with Hindustan Zinc over the past few years by delivering on this extended scope of works both safely and efficiently,” Muller said.
