CIMIC Group’s mineral processing company Sedgman has been awarded a contract by Heron Resources to deliver a zinc-copper processing facility and associated infrastructure at the Woodlawn mine site in New South Wales. Work is expected to commence in mid-2017.
The engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract will generate revenue to Sedgman of approximately $107 million over 18 months.
CIMIC Group chief executive officer Adolfo Valderas said, “The contract for this zinc-copper crushing and processing facility is a further example of CIMIC Group’s strategy to expand through diversifying by commodity or geography.
“The contract enhances Sedgman’s position as a global mineral specialist with a balanced commodity portfolio.”
Sedgman managing director Michael Carretta said: “We are pleased to be working with Heron Resources on one of the key Australian base metal projects.
“Leveraging both technical and commercial innovations, Sedgman has been able to add value for our client and differentiate ourselves in the market, further cementing our position as a leading resource sector EPC provider.”
The project comprises civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and commissioning works for the zinc-copper crushing and processing facility at the former Woodlawn mine site, 30km south of Goulburn.
