Thiess has secured a $260 million contract extension from Wesfarmers Curragh for coal mining and pre-strip overburden removal at its Curragh North Mine located 38 km north of Blackwater in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
The 33 month contract includes mining almost 90 million cubic metres of overburden and coal at the site.
Thiess was first awarded the contract for Curragh North in October 2004. The contract included the construction of infrastructure, mining and pre-strip activities for the site. An initial project target was set requiring the exposure of 100,000 tonnes of coal by March 2005.
