CONTRACT AWARD VALUE
The Middlemount Coal project was the first mining contract awarded to NRW in Queensland. The project was also NRW’s first contract in the coal mining industry.
The original five year mining contract was awarded in 2011 and included; clear & grubbing, long and short term detailed mine scheduling & planning, drilling & blasting including design, load & haul of 36 million BCM of overburden each year plus approximately two million tonnes of coal.
In February 2013, the new owners and NRW reached an agreement to restructure the Mining Services contract with Middlemount Coal JV into a dry hire contract (refer PFS – 079 Middlemount Dry Hire fact sheet).
NRW employed approximately 300 local people from the surrounding areas for the duration of the project.
