Western Australian based mining and exploration drilling company Australasian Mining Services (AMS) has secured a three-year total drill consumable supply contract at the Roy Hill iron ore operation in the Pilbara.
The Roy Hill mining, rail and port operation, located around 340km southeast of Port Hedland produces 55 million tonnes per annum of iron ore.
Under the deal, AMS will provide all drilling consumables and will work together with the drill and blast team to enhance production at the site.
AMS managing director Andrew Andreou welcomed the agreement.
“This agreement with Roy Hill allows us to broaden our reach in the Pilbara, and we’re excited to partner with a world class company that shares our commitment to innovation and continual improvement, health and safety, and the environment and community,” he said.
Earlier this year Roy Hill awarded Guma Indigenous Construction Resources Group (ICRG) a contract to conduct the Roy Hill port installation project at its operation. The project involved the construction and installation of four concrete evaporation sumps at the port to provide more protection against potential environmental effects of transported materials.
