Downer awarded $600m Blackwater coal contract

Downer EDI has won a three-year contract of about $600 million to provide mining and related services at BMA’s Blackwater coal
mine in central Queensland.

The scope of work to be carried out by Downer under the contract includes:
 overburden removal and haulage;
 equipment maintenance; and
 drilling services.

The company said the contract would consolidate two existing contracts and would not have any material impact on
existing operations of Downer at Blackwater.

“Downer has been working closely with BMA at a number of mine sites for many years and we look forward to continuing to provide safe and productive services at the Blackwater coal mine,” Downer chief executive officer Grant Fenn said.

Mr Fenn said Downer’s Queensland operations included the Blackwater, Goonyella, Commodore and Meandu mines.
