Hughes wins Yancoal drilling contract

Hughes Drilling has been awarded the longterm overburden blast hole contract for Yancoal’s operations.

The drilling covers coal three mines, the Yarrabee  and Cameby Downs mines in Queensland, and the Duralie mine in NSW, and is slated to begin next month.

The value of the contract was not released.

This latest awarded is a major move forward for Yancoal, following its Stratford coal mine receiving extension approvals earlier this month.
