Leighton Contractors awarded $300 million coal contract extension

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Leighton Contractors’ Resources Division has been awarded a three-year contract extension worth $300 million by BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA).
Under the contract, Leighton Mining will undertake the project management, surface mining, engineering and maintenance work required to deliver the overburden removal services at the Peak Downs Mine, which is situated in the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland.
Steven Keyser, General Manager of Leighton Mining said the contract extension demonstrated the success of long term partnerships between experienced mine service providers and top-tier producers such as BMA.
“We have been working with BMA for over eight years, providing a range of services across a number of their mines in Central Queensland.
“We look forward to continuing and building upon this long-standing relationship that is underpinned by our proven performance.
“This contract extension acknowledges the great work done by the team at Peak Downs and their dedication to safety and excellence in mining,” Mr Keyser said.
For Leighton Mining, this deal brings the value of recent coal contract extensions to over $800 million, following a $350 million extension to Duralie in June and $160 million to Moorvale in May.
