Under this contract, Hampton’s scope of works will include drill and blast as well as excavation works on three of the development’s open pits – MacPhersons, A-Cap and Tycho.
In addition, Hampton will be establishing underground portal positions in each of the three pits in order to cater for potential underground entry. The company is also responsible for the construction of site foundations – such as the workshop – and haulage of ore to the treatment mill.
