In announcing an encouraging 10-month financial performance, NRW Holdings revealed its RCR Mining Technologies (RCRMT) division, working in tandem with DIAB Engineering, had been awarded a works contract at Newmont’s Tanami Expansion 2 project in the Northern Territory of Australia.
In an update on the company’s performance to the end of April, NRW Holdings said it had generated A$1.6 billion ($1.05 billion) of revenue in the 10 month-period from June 2019, representing a record revenue for the group compared with any previous full financial year.
Over this period, the company had progressed with the integration of the BGC Contracting business into the group, following the acquisition at the end of last year.
On contract news, the company said RCRMT and DIAB Engineering, which the company acquired through the BGC buy, had secured a A$17 million fabrication package for Tanami Expansion 2, with the companies manufacturing the head frame and skyshaft steel work for the project.
Jules Pemberton, NRW’s Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, said: “The award by Newmont to RCRMT provides an opportunity to bring both RCRMT and DIAB Engineering (acquired as part of the BGC Contracting transaction), together to deliver this important project.
“The ability to deliver this work from our regional facilities, in Bunbury, Geraldton and our Welshpool facility, to a major Australian project reflects the growing capability of NRW in the Australian manufacturing sector to provide specialised capital equipment for mining clients.”
Newmont’s board signed off on the TE2 project in October 2019. The expansion includes construction of a 1,460 m shaft, additional capacity in the processing plant, and supporting infrastructure to enable profitable recovery of ore at a depth of 2,140 m below surface.
