Action Drill & Blast (ADB) has been awarded a three-year extension to its drill-and-blast services contract at MIddlemount coal mine in Queensland, Australia. ADB has been working at the Bowen Basin mine since the mine opened in 2011.
“We have formed a close partnership with mine owner, Middlemount Coal Pty Ltd since commencing onsite – a relationship that has delivered exceptional performance outcomes over the years,” said ADB General Manager, Warren Fair.
“We look forward to building on this and continuing to deliver an efficient, productive and high-quality service.”
Middlemount Coal Pty Ltd is a joint venture between Yancoal and US-based Peabody Energy, both of which hold a 50% interest.
The Middlemount mine produces PCI coal and hard coking coal for export markets with coal shipped through Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and Abbot Point Port. In 2015, the mine produced 5.53 million t of ROM coal and 4.01 million t of saleable coal.
