In late 2010 UEA Civil and Mining were invited by KMG to tender on surface mining services at their Ridges Iron Ore Project in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. In early January 2011, UEA Civil and Mining were issued with a ‘Letter of Award’ to commence surface mining services in April of this year.
The scope of works includes the operation, maintenance and supply of 2 Vermeer T1255 surface miners. Over the 4 year contract period it is anticipated that approximately 10m tonnes of iron ore will be mined. It is with great pleasure that the UEA team commence this project with the Kimberley Metal Group.
