SMS Mining Services extends contract with Norton Gold Fields in Kalgoorlie

SMS Mining Services says it has been awarded a three-year extension to continue with maintenance and repair contract (MARC) services and equipment rental work for Norton Gold Fields (NGF) at its Kalgoorlie gold operations.

Upon being awarded the MARC contract at NGF’s Matts Dam South gold project last year, the mining contractor said it held the MARC services and equipment rental contracts for all current operating open-pit mines for NGF and had previously provided mining services works at its Racetrack gold project.

Its relationship with NGF dates back to 2013, with one of its earliest contracts being the MARC, equipment hire and maintenance for the Enterprise deposit, located 38 km northwest of NGF’s Paddington mill, in Western Australia.

According to SMS’ website, it supplies 120-360 t excavators, 100-190 t haul trucks and ancillary equipment to this site.
