A mining services company won a tender for an Asia-backed coal operation.

National Mining Services recently secured a contract at China-heaquartered Yancoal’s Moolarben Coal Mine in Ulan, 137km east of Dubbo.

The successful bidder will spend at least three years pre stripping 15 million bank cubic metres of overburden annually. This requires supplying Liebherr R9800 excavators, Liebherr T282 dump trucks and other ultra-class mine equipment.

There is also potential for the contract to be extended for an extra two years. The deal will create 75 jobs.

“This is a significant contract in National Group’s history,” founding managing director Mark Ackroyd said in a public statement.

“We intend to expand our long-term presence in the coal sector, help more companies export high-quality Australian coal, and create jobs for regional communities.”

The same contractor previously won a surface mining tender at Newcrest Mining’s Cadia mine, 28km south of Orange. That deal requires supplying a Hitachi ZX890 excavator, Caterpillar 793 dump trucks, and Caterpillar 994K and 988K large wheel loaders.

The company has advertised multiple permanent, full-time diesel fitter and plant mechanic roles. Successful applicants will be offered “leading pay rates”, superannuation and accommodation.
