Perenti Ltd has announced that its underground mining business, Barminco, has been awarded a three-year extension of its mining services contract at AngloGold Ashanti’s Sunrise Dam underground gold mine in the Goldfields of Western Australia. The A$450 million contract is for three years commencing October 1, 2024 and includes underground development, production and mining support services. No new growth capital expenditure is required.

Mark Norwell, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Perenti said: “AngloGold Ashanti is one of our largest clients, and we are proud to have worked with them for the past 20 years.

Ultimately this supports generation of free cash flow which continues to be a key focus of our strategy.”
