Australia-based civil and mining contractor Brierty Limited has secured a contract from Atlas Iron to construct a 60km access road for the Abydos Mine Project in Port Hedland.
The $15m contract involves the development of bulk earthworks, drainage and pavement layers.
Commenting on the developments, Brierty managing director Peter McBain stated that the contract reflects the company's "consistent progress" in civil earthwork projects in the Pilbara region.
"Our proven ability to deliver civil projects for our clients in the Pilbara has demonstrated the strong capability of our construction teams, which has helped underpin this new and important relationship with Atlas Iron Ore.
"We are excited about the opportunity to be part of the growth of Atlas Iron as it expands its production capacity and look forward to developing a longer-term relationship with such a key Pilbara iron ore producer that shares many of our values," added McBain.
With this project, Brierty has secured contracts worth $105m for the current financial year.
