SRG Global wins work at Blackwater

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.
