NRW has received an executed contract extension from Atlas Iron Pty Ltd for the mining and crushing services works at the Mt Webber Iron Ore Mine in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Located 220 km south of Port Hedland in the Pilbara, Western Australia, Mt Webber has two mining areas in Fender and Dalton which produces a high-grade lump and fines product that is used in the Atlas Iron supply chain.
The works to be continued include load and haul, drill and blast and ROM re-handling and crushing and screening. The drill and blast and crushing components are to be undertaken by NRW’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Action Drill & Blast Pty Ltd and Primero Pty Ltd. Primero has designed, constructed and will operate a new PGX-1000 crushing plant to allow crushing and screening of up to 1000 tph. The anticipated value of the contract extension is approximately AUS$60 million over a duration commencing July 2022 and expected to be completed by the end of 2024 with a project workforce averaging circa 80 personnel.
NRW CEO, Jules Pemberton, said: “I am delighted to announce that NRW has been retained by Atlas Iron for the extended term at the Mt Webber Iron Ore Mine. NRW has a long history as a high-quality provider of mining services to our clients in the Iron Ore industry and I look forward to our ongoing successful partnership with Atlas Iron.”
