Thiess wins AUD134 million mining contract in Indonesia

February 13, 2017

JAKARTA - CIMIC Group’s global mining services provider, Thiess, has secured a new contract with client Cakrawala Langit Sejahtera (CLS) and a contract extension that continues building on Thiess’ partnership with Bayan Resources Group.

The contracts have a combined value of AUD134 million (US$101 million) and will be delivered over 15-months, through a unique mining solution developed by Thiess for adjoining pits located in Indonesia’s South Kalimantan region.

Thiess will share resources across the Arutmin-owned, CLS-managed Satui and Bayan’s Wahana coal mines, and has undertaken the mine planning and engineering to develop these two mines as a single operation.

CIMIC’s Group Executive Mining and Mineral Processing and Thiess Managing Director, Michael Wright , says the solution enables Thiess to both maximise coal recovery and extend the reserves of the clients’ operations. “This is a significant achievement for Thiess,” he said. (AI).
