Contractor Thiess has secured contracts at two Indonesian mines with a combined value of about A$480 million.
The contract extensions include South Kalimantan, Indonesia, at the Wahana mine, from Bayan Resources. The second is at the Hanoman mine from PT Cakrawala Langit Sejahtera (CLS), which mines the pits in the Satui area owned by Arutmin, part of Bumi Resources.
Thiess said its scope of work at the two neighboring operations will extend its mining services, including drill and blast, load and haul and pit dewatering.
Thiess executive chair and CEO Michael Wright noted the clients are long-standing partners.
“These extensions reinforce our capability and credentials for operational excellence. They also give us opportunities to showcase our passionate commitment to diversity and inclusion, where we continue to increase the participation of women and people with disability in our workforce,” he added.
Thiess president director, Indonesia, Jeffrey Kounang added: “The solutions we provide for both clients enable our team to maximise resource recoveries and optimise the reserves of both operations. We are proud to continuously live up to our clients’ expectations and deliver on our promises.”
