MACA wins $115m contract for Matilda gold mine

MACA has been named preferred contractor for Blackham Resources Matilda gold mine.

Valued at $115 million, the contract consists of open pit mining services, including drilling and blasting, and loading and hauling.

Work will be carried out over a period of 32 months, and employ more than 100 people at its peak.

While the project will require some new equipment, it will predominately utilise MACA’s existing, idle fleet.

Mobilisation is already underway, with actual mining to commence as soon as practicable, MACA said.

The award of this project takes MACA’s work in hand at 30 June to around $1.1 billion.
