Miningaustralia.com.au reported that Industrea has renewed its mining contract at the Baralaba South mine in the Bowen Basin. The contract, with AUD 38 million annually, will see Industrea provide whole of mine services at the mine, including drill and blast works. It will run until December 31st 2013.
Industrea originally won the contract in 2009, and since then has completed various work including the construction of the recently completed 1:1000 flood levee wall extension.
At the end of 2010 severe flooding saw the Baralaba mine inundated with water.
Mr Robin Levison CEO of Industrea stated that the renewal is a demonstration of the strong relationship between it and Cockatoo Coal, which owns Baralaba. He added that "Subject to production volumes at the mine there is an option for Baralaba Coal to continue contract services in 2014".
