Action Drill & Blast (ADB) is pleased to announce that our parent company, NRW Holdings, has been awarded the mining services contract for the Pilgangoora Lithium Project in WA by mine owner Altura Mining Limited. The award is subject to Altura completing funding for the development of the project.
ADB will be providing the drill and blast component of NRW’s scope of works, consisting of full drilling and blasting services, including the supply and management of explosives.
We will have a crew of approximately 30 personnel on the project and will utilise two top hole hammer drills. Mobilisation will be completed during March.
ADB General Manager Warren Fair said: “We are pleased to support NRW in executing this contract. With our significant experience in Lithium, best-for-project approach and focus on quality, we expect to deliver tangible productivity benefits at Pilgangoora.”
The project, located approximately 123km from the town of Port Hedland, is a world class hard-rock open pit lithium mine. When the mine commences production in late 2017, it will be the fourth lithium producing mine in Australia.
