Australian mining contractor Thiess has been awarded a $250 million contract by Jellinbah Resources to operate the company’s Jellinbah Plains coal mine in Central Queensland.

The 39-month contract, which starts January 1, follows on the completion of the previous contract with Thiess.

“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Jellinbah Group and to continue our focus on bringing cost efficiencies and innovation to the mine site,” Thiess Managing Director Bruce Munro said. “This contract win demonstrates that there are still strong opportunities for clients and their partners to deliver exceptional value in the coal mining industry.”

The Jellinbah open-pit mine is part of the Jellinbah East coal mining project located near Blackwater in Central Queensland. The mine has been in operation since 1989.

Leighton Holdings Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Marcelino Fernández Verdes said: “This contract illustrates how the Leighton Group can leverage its scale as the world’s largest mining contractor to deliver value to our clients.”

Thiess is the mining division of Leighton Holdings Limited (ASX:LEI), parent company to Leighton Holdings Group, a leading international contractor.
