Brierty wins Newmont gold contract

Brierty has secured a $30 million contract for mining services at Newmont’s Boddington gold project.

The contract begins in September and will go over 30 months.

CEO Ray Bushnell said it has added to the number of civil projects they have provided to mining companies.

“Brierty’s ability to win this contract demonstrates the diversity of our civil contracting offering,” he said.

“It also recognises the ability for Brierty to seamlessly move between civil and mining work utilising the same personnel and fleet.”

Bushnell added that it will also increase the use of their existing plant equipment, and brings their order book to $286 million.

 The win comes after the contractor suffered a $22 million loss on a road project which eventually led to the stepping down of managing director Peter McBain last week, the West Australian reports.
