AusGroup’s MAS Australasia subsidiary has been awarded a five year contract to carry out maintenance at Newmont Goldcorp’s Boddington gold mine in Western Australia.
MAS will use the existing local presence and infrastructure it has in the southwest Of Western Australia and provide specialist mechanical, scaffolding and rope access maintenance services to the mine, AusGroup said.
Additionally, the scope requires MAS to provide a range of trade-qualified technicians to support Newmont Goldcorp’s mechanical maintenance and general shutdown services over the contract term.
Shane Kimpton, CEO and Managing Director, said: “This contract cements MAS’ reputation as a bespoke maintenance services provider to a diverse portfolio of customers.
“Our value proposition and service offering extends beyond LNG and construction projects and this is an excellent example of where MAS can bring innovation and significant value.”
Boddington produced 709,000 oz of gold for Newmont Goldcorp last year and is currently undergoing a stripping campaign in the South Pit in order to reach higher-grade ore.
