NRW win Middlemount contract

NRW subsidiary Action Drill & Blast has won a contract for services at the Middlemount coal mine.

The $25 million, three year contract will see ADB provide drill and blasting services at the mine.

ADB has operated at the mine since it opened, providing drilling and blasting services as well as explosive supply.

The new contract will extend the services aspect of the existing contract, although Middlemount will now supply the explosives.

Jules Pemberton, NRW’s CEO, welcomed the extension of the contract, which has run since 2011, adding, “The contract ensures continuity of work for all ADB staff and drilling assets currently deployed on site.”
