Golding Contractors set to commence work at Baralaba North coal mine QLD


Posted by Monica Gameng

Golding Contractors – a wholly owned subsidiary of NRW Holdings – is set to commence preliminary works to restart operations at the Baralaba North coal project in Queensland.

Golding has signed a Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) with Wonbindi Coal Pty Ltd and Baralaba Coal Company Pty Ltd in order to proceed with preliminary works while the final contract is being finalised. The final contract is expected to be valued at approximately $350 million with a three-year duration.

Scope of works under the final contract – which is expected to be awarded in the coming weeks – will include mine planning, topsoil removal, drilling and blasting activities as well as loading and hauling of overburden and coal, and coal handling through screening and crushing.

The client – Wonbindi Coal and Baralaba Coal – will be supplying the plant and equipment needed for the project.

“This is a great opportunity for Golding to add another full mine operation contract to its portfolio,” NRW Managing Director and CEO Jules Pemberton said.

Golding Contractors’ CEO Geoff Caton added: “Our team is ready and looking forward to working with Wonbindi to recommence mining operations at Baralaba North Mine.”

The Baralaba North Mine is an open pit coal mine – located in the Baralaba town in Queensland – which produces high-quality metallurgical coal that will be exported out of Gladstone Ports Corporation.
