Procurement begins for $300 million Murchison mining contract in WA

Gascoyne Resources has chosen NRW Holdings as the preferred mining contractor for the Dalgaranga Gold  project, located in the Murchison region of WA.

Subject to finalisation a project manager is expected to be appointed by by the end of next week (3 November).

Alternatively, procurement enquiries can be directed to (estimating manager) Steve Schalit  via Steve.Schalit@nrw.com.au

The contract, estimated to be worth $300 million, will focus on open pit mining, including drill and blast, of four pits over a six-period.

Dalgaranga has an initial six-year mine life to produce around 100,000 ounces of gold a year at cash costs of about $1000 an ounce.

NRW, which will utilise existing plant and equipment on the project, plans to initially have 160 workers at Dalgaranga, with its workforce expected to peak at 200.

Earlier in the year Gascoyne Resources awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to GR Engineering for the project.

Gascoyne has rapidly advanced development of the Dalgaranga project over the past year as it moves the operation towards production in the first half of next year.
