NRW Holdings Ltd has advised that its wholly owned subsidiary, Golding Contractors Pty Ltd, has signed a contract with Aberdare Collieries Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of CS Energy Pty Ltd, to extend the current contract mining agreement (CMA) beyond 30 June 2022.
Under the terms of the CMA, the term is extended four years until 30 June 2026, with an option for CS Energy to extend the contract for up to another four years. The contract value for the initial four-year extension is approximately AUS$150 million.
The contract extension represents the third mining contract term and life-of-mine to date for Golding and CS Energy at Kogan Creek Mine, with Golding performing the civil works in 2006 before mining commenced in 2007.
Under this new arrangement all major plant and equipment will be supplied by Golding requiring a total new capital spend of approximately AUS$11 million in the first year. All the remaining fleet required is currently operating on site and is Golding owned.
Golding will continue to employ approximately 70 people at the mine, most of which live in the local Chinchilla or broader South East Queensland regions.
NRW CEO and Managing Director, Jules Pemberton, said: “This extended agreement is the longest continuous contract in Golding’s proud history. Golding has now successfully negotiated four contract extensions with four different clients in the last six months demonstrating the business’ goal to work with our clients to deliver sustained value.”
