Located approximately 250km south of Perth and Fremantle, the Greenbushes lithium project is undergoing expansion to increase its production capacity.
The lithium feedstock from the Greenbushes mine is supplied to Tianqi Lithium Energy Australia’s lithium hydroxide facility in Kwinana.
Earlier this year, Macmahon secured an A$1.1bn contract from Talison Lithium Australia to undertake open-cut mining activities of load and haul and crusher feed at the Greenbushes mine.
Talison Lithium Australia is a joint venture arrangement owned by Tianqi Lithium Energy Australia and the Albemarle Corporation.
