PYBAR has been awarded the contract for underground exploration, decline development and diamond drilling at Evolution Mining’s Cowal Gold Operations located in West Wyalong, 350 km west of Sydney, Australia.

The 12-month contract will employ a team of 37 personnel and comprises portal development, decline development, level development and diamond drilling.

Recruitment for a number of positions available at the project, which has a start date of 1 March 2019, is ongoing. A preference for local residents remains a focal element of PYBAR’s recruitment strategy.

PYBAR CEO, Brendan Rouse, said: “This contract further strengthens our position in the Eastern seaboard following the announcement of our contract at Peak Mine late last year. We look forward to working closely with the Evolution team to support their development requirements.”

Commenting on the contract award, Craig Fawcett, General Manager Cowal Gold Operations, said: “This development is an important component of achieving our objective of producing 300 000 oz. per annum at Cowal. We look forward to working with PYBAR to deliver this project effectively.”
