Mining services provider MACA has secured a contract extension for open-pit mining at the Gruyere gold mine in Western Australia (WA).

Located 1,200km north-east of Perth in WA’s north-eastern goldfields region, the mine is owned by the Gruyere joint venture (JV) between Gold Fields and Gold Road Resources.

Under the contract, MACA will provide mining services including load and haul, drill and blast, crushing and screening, as well as light voltage/high voltage maintenance.

MACA expects the extension to generate A$850m ($575.3m) of revenue over the five-year term. MACA is owned by Thiess, in which CIMIC Group holds a 50% stake.

Thiess Group Australia West executive and MACA CEO David Greig said: “We are excited to embark on this extended partnership with Gruyere JV, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, who have consistently delivered high-quality services to date. This contract extension further solidifies our long-standing partnership with the Gruyere JV.

“MACA remains committed to providing innovative mining solutions that align with our clients evolving needs. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Gruyere JV in their ongoing sustainability initiatives.”

Furthermore, MACA will continue to work with the traditional landowner, Yilka, to ensure a collaborative approach to the mine’s operations.

In 2018, MACA carried out the bulk earthworks at the Gruyere mine. It also completed both the first stage of the run-of-mine pad work and the construction of the tailings storage facility.
