Thiess has been awarded a $189 million contract extension by Jellinbah Mining to continue to operate the Jellinbah Plains pit at the Jellinbah East Mine near Blackwater in Central Queensland.

The 30-month extension will result in Thiess continuing to deliver mining services at the mine until September 2020.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Adolfo Valderas said: “This extension reflects the successful relationship between Thiess and the Jellinbah Group, which dates to the establishment of its Lake Vermont coal mine in 2007.”

CIMIC Group Mining and Minerals Executive and Thiess Managing Director Douglas Thompson said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Jellinbah Group and continue our focus on producing innovative mining techniques that drive cost efficiencies.

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing involvement with the Blackwater community, where we launched our Sisters in Mining program, and support a series of community initiatives.”
