GR Engineering win Doray contract

GR Engineering has won a $30.3 million EPC contract for Doray Minerals' Andy Well gold project.

The contract is for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the processing plant at the mine in Meekatharra, Western Australia.

Joe Ricciardo, GR's managing director, said "following our appointment as preferred contractor in July last year it is pleasing to have now formalised our contractual arrangements with Doray. Work on the Andy Well gold project is already underway and is proceeding on time and budget.

"GR Engineering was selected to design and construct the Andy Well processing plant after working with Doray on the bankable feasibility study for the project."

Doray announced the beginning of operations at the Andy Well mine in November last year.

The mine is expected to generate more than $409 million over its life, with the company estimating Andy Well to produce 74,000 ounces of gold per annum with a total of 256,000 ounces of gold recoverable over a three-and-a-half year mine life.
