MLG Oz Limited says it has been awarded a material five-year contract by Westgold Resources Limited that will see the METS company service the gold miner’s operational hubs across the Murchison and Bryah Basin regions.
The contract, which leverages MLG’s integrated support model, is focused on enhancing Westgold’s operating efficiencies. It also consolidates MLG’s resources in the Mid-West region and represents a material win for the company, it said.
Westgold owns and operates the Tuckabianna, Bluebird and Fortnum processing hubs across the Murchison and Bryah Basin regions of Western Australia, with its objective to leverage MLG’s existing fleet capacity to enhance operational efficiencies and use MLG’s latest road haulage technical advancements, MLG said.
Westgold is to provide dedicated maintenance facilities at each of its sites to support MLG operations.
The scope of services includes the delivery of in-pit, off- and on-road haulage, road maintenance and run of mine management services activities across all of Westgold’s operations.
The initial ramp up and mobilisation activities are expected to commence in October 2022, with anticipated annual revenues of circa-A$40 million ($27 million) with revenue to build from December 2022.
MLG founder, Managing Director and majority shareholder, Murray Leahy, said: “We are delighted Westgold has selected us to enhance their operations in the Murchison and Bryah Basin regions. Westgold is focused on driving cost and operational efficiencies to enhance the profitability of its business and we are proud to have been chosen as a key and trusted business partner.
“This is a large opportunity for MLG to establish a long-term relationship with a growth-oriented gold miner and Westgold’s faith in MLG represents a significant endorsement of our capabilities.”
