Macmahon was awarded a three-year mining contract for the Greenfield Byerwen Coal Mine open-cut project, with operations commencing in August 2017.
The hard coking coal project is located near Glenden in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
Macmahon undertakes all mining operations at the Byerwen Project including drilling, blast design, load and haul, haul road maintenance and mobile plant maintenance.
In June 2020, Macmahon was awarded a contract extension to November 2023, with a further two-year option. This expansion of the contract will significantly increase production from five to 10 million tonnes of hard coking coal per annum. Financially, the revenue from the contract could exceed $1 billion should the two-year option be exercised.
It will be overwhelming at first, but in the end, it will be worth it. You'll learn lots of new things that will help you outside of work too. You’ll make new friends, develop new skills and get paid to work. I wouldn't change what I do for the world.
