Guma Indigenous Construction Resources Group (ICRG) has been awarded a contract to carry out the Roy Hill port sump installation project at the miner’s operations near Port Hedland in Western Australia.
The project involves the construction and installation of four concrete evaporation sumps at the port, which will provide greater protection against potential environmental impacts of transported materials.
According to Guma ICRG, the scope of work includes: the redirection of conveyor effluent; excavation works to accommodate the sump; installation of formwork and associated concrete pours; and earthworks to accommodate permanent drainage.
Guma ICRG chief executive officer Shane Cable said this project was highly strategic for the company and reflected its refocus on business development.
“We believe the nature of this contract demonstrates our adaptability and demonstrates the confidence large resources firms have in ICRG when it comes to our track record of project delivery,” Cable said.
“I look forward to further building Guma ICRG’s relationship with Roy Hill, where we have had previous involvement in projects including the upgrade and sealing of the mine access road.”
Guma ICRG is an Indigenous contractor that provides civil and mining services to iron ore mining companies in the East Pilbara region of WA.
