BGC Contracting Awarded Mining Contract at Wodgina

BGC Contracting has been awarded the contract mining works on the Wodgina project.

The contract is in the order of $30 million over 15 months and the scope is to mine direct shipping iron ore for Atlas Iron Ltd. The Wodgina project is located 100 km south of Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of WA.

Martin Spibey Executive General Manager Mining said, “This success wouldn’t have materialised without the safe and cooperative culture of our site team and the support from our off-site Hazelmere office. We look forward to work commencing on site and performing well for the client. Atlas Iron is an emerging force in the industry and we will be working to achieve a long and mutually rewarding relationship”

Work will commence immediately with mobilisation of personnel and site preparation, with mining to start in June 2010.
