BGC Contracting Ramone Gold Project

A national mining and construction firm has secured gold mining work for the first time in a decade.

BGC Contracting recently won a $30 million contract for Northern Star Resources’ Ramone Gold Project, 59km east of Wiluna in Western Australia.

The 18-month open pit mining project involves delivering both the initial infrastructure and mining services for this greenfield site, including the installation of site facilities, drilling, blasting, loading, hauling and dewatering.

BGC will also build internal haul roads, establish a site workshop, prepare explosive compound and magazines, carry out earthworks and other site preparations. The contractor already has a mining fleet of a 250T class excavator and five Komatsu 785 dump trucks.

“We are very excited to secure this project opportunity with BGC Contracting growing its projects, both in commodity and geographical diversification,” BGC CEO Greg Heylen said in a public statement. “This contract with Northern Star Resources puts us in good stead for BGC Contracting securing further gold mining opportunities.”

BGC is celebrating the latest contract as a “major achievement” of the company’s diversification strategy, and estimates there will be between 50 and 60 new jobs created at this project.

Construction is underway and will end in late 2020.
