Mineral processing firm Sedgman has secured a $9m design and construction contract to upgrade the Sonoma mine’s coal processing plant, located in Australia’s Queensland Bowen Basin.
Sedgman will design, construct and commission the upgrade of the existing facility by the second half of 2009 to increase efficiency and performance.
The Sonoma mine is a joint venture between Australia-based Q Coal, US iron ore producer Cliffs Natural Resources, Japan’s JFE Shoji and others.
Sedgman has previously worked on Sonoma’s original coal handling and processing plant.
