Dawson South extension for Thiess

Dawson South extension for Thiess
 CIMIC subsidiary Thiess has secured a $190 million contract extension from Anglo American to continue to provide mining services at the Dawson South coal mine in the Bowen Basin.
The 36-month extension covers coal mining, overburden removal and run-of-mine rehandling services.
 “This contract extension builds on our long-standing relationship with Anglo American and reflects the team’s ability to create value for our clients globally. We’ve been working with Anglo at Dawson for eight years, and I’m pleased the relationship continues to prosper,” CIMIC Group chief executive officer Michael Wright said.
Thiess has a long history operating at the Dawson Mine, being part of the original joint venture of Thiess Peabody Mitsui Coal established in 1962 to own and operate what was then known as Moura mine.
A Thiess-Sedgman joint venture designed, built and commissioned the coal handling preparation plant at Dawson in 2008.
