Thiess Pty Ltd has been awarded a six-year mining contract to extend mining operations at OZ Minerals' Prominent Hill Copper and Gold Mine in South Australia.
With an expected cumulative value of $1 billion, the contract award ensures that Thiess will undertake the mining operations for OZ Minerals until 2018. Thiess is well underway in the planning, training and implementation of the ramp-up which requires a substantial expansion of Thiess' existing operation, peaking at five fleets of large mining equipment.
Thiess' $2.8 billion mining business in Australia and overseas provides turnkey services for mine owners, including mine development and approvals, mine planning, infrastructure design and construction, technical services, plant procurement and maintenance, and all facets of mining operations. The Prominent Hill operations are a crucial part of Thiess' business.
