MACH Energy Selects Thiess for Mount Pleasant Operation
Thiess announced its selection as the preferred mining services contractor for the Mount Pleasant Operation in New South Wales in Australia. MACH Energy has notified Thiess of its intention to enter into exclusive negotiations to finalise the terms with the view to execute a mining services contract. Under the contract, Thiess will continue to provide full scope mining services including drill and blast, load and haul, mining and run of mine rehandling services, equipment maintenance and progressive rehabilitation.
Subject to contract finalization, from April 2022, revenue to Thiess is expected to be approximately AUD 925 million over four and a half years.
Thiess began operating at Mount Pleasant in 2017 as a greenfield mine, applying industry best practice mining development and operations with uncompromising environmental and safety standards. This includes delivering the operation’s first rehabilitation two months before first coal was mined, demonstrating a true commitment to sustainable practices and to the community more broadly.
