Downer has contracted SRG Global to provide production drilling at BHP Mitsubishi Alliance’s (BMA) Blackwater coal mine in Queensland.
The $20 million, two-and-a-half-year contract, sees work start later this month.
The work flows from BMA awarding Downer a $600 million contract to supply mining and related services at the Blackwater earlier this year.
That three-year contract involves overburden removal and haulage, equipment maintenance and drilling services.
SRG Global was formed last month through a merger between SRG and Global Construction Services.
