Resource Development Group’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Central Systems Pty Ltd, is to design and construct an overpass at Fortescue Metals Group’s Cloudbreak mine site as part of an agreement with the miner’s Chichester Metals subsidiary.
The overpass is due for completion in late November, RDG said.
Cloudbreak is one of two mines (Christmas Creek being the other) within the Chichester Hub in the Chichester Ranges of Western Australia. The hub has an annual production capacity of 100 Mt/y of iron ore from three ore processing facilities (OPF).
Cloudbreak also hosts a 5 km relocatable conveyor (pictured), which includes two semi-mobile primary crushing stations and feeds directly into the Cloudbreak OPF.
Separately, RDG’s 80%‐owned subsidiary, Crushing Service Solutions, has been awarded a crushing and screening services contract with Tianye SXO Gold Mining Pty Ltd to provide these services in order to feed the Minjar gold plant near Southern Cross in Western Australia.
This contract will have a duration of approximately 12 months, RDG said.
The aggregate amount of these contract awards is A$26 million ($17.9 million), according to RDG.
