Thiess secures four-year contract extension at BMA Caval Ridge

Thiess says it has been awarded a four-year contract extension with BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) for the Caval Ridge metallurgical coal operations in Queensland, Australia.

With a revenue of A$580 million ($383 million), the contract sees the company continuing to provide mining services at the Caval Ridge mine, operating and maintaining mining equipment to move overburden to support BMA’s production requirements. The extension continues the relationship with BMA at Caval Ridge, which commenced in December 2017.

Thiess Group Executive Chair and CEO, Michael Wright, said: “We are very pleased that our ongoing commitment to safe and sustainable mining has resulted in BMA awarding us a four-year extension at Caval Ridge.

“Both our working relationship and the increasing diversity within our workforce are driving factors for our continued success.”

Thiess Group Executive Australia East, Rae O’Brien, added: “Thiess continues to support the development and long-term economic value to the local community at Caval Ridge by providing local employment and regional supply opportunities.”
