Thiess awarded contract at Leinster Underground Sydney

CIMIC Group's global mining services provider, Thiess, will continue providing mining services at Leinster Underground Mine in Western Australia under a contract with BHP Nickel West, generating revenue estimated at $190 million.

The contract, for a minimum of 24 months, includes the provision of a full range of underground mining services and equipment to support the mine's lateral development and associated ore production including load and haul, shotcreting, cable bolting and full fleet maintenance services.

Leinster Underground is an underground nickel mine within BHP Nickel West's Leinster Nickel Operation, located in the northern goldfields of Western Australia.

Thiess began work at Leinster in 2016, when the team excavated around 610 metres of horizontal development to access nearly 230,000 tonnes of ore using sub-level open stoping mining methods.
