CIMIC Group’s mineral processing company, Sedgman, has been awarded a contract by New Century Resources’ (ASX:NCZ) subsidiary Century Mining Limited to operate and maintain the Lawn Hill processing plant, concentrate pipeline and Karumba Port facility in Queensland.
The contract will generate revenue to Sedgman of approximately $110 million over five years.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “This contract demonstrates Sedgman’s engineering and operational expertise, and highlights the value this team delivers across the project lifecycle for our mining clients.”
Sedgman Managing Director Grant Fraser said: “We have developed a strong working relationship with New Century Resources at the Century Mine, firstly through a feasibility study and then on refurbishment and reconfiguration of the plant and infrastructure. I’m pleased that we are building on our early involvement, showcasing our full project cycle delivery capability, by adding operation and maintenance services to our works at the site.”
In 2017 Sedgman provided a feasibility study on the restart of the Century Zinc mine, concentrate pipeline and Karumba port. Sedgman subsequently commenced engineering, procurement, construction works for the refurbishment and reconfiguration of the plant and port, and provided services for operational readiness requirements.
Early works at the site commenced in December 2017 and the project is on track to re-commence production in the third quarter of 2018.
