Wolf Minerals has awarded a US$130 million mining services contract to CA Blackwell for the Hemerdon tungsten and tin project in Devon, UK.

The contract is made up of two parts; phase one is mining pre-strip and mine development, and phase two is mine production. The contract term for phase one is 11 months from the commencement date, followed by phase two which has a five year term from completion of phase one work.

Wolf will advise Blackwell of the formal commencement date for the project work under the contract, which is currently expected to be in March 2014, dependent upon the progress of the project schedule.

Humphrey Hale, managing director of Wolf Minerals, said: “Wolf is delighted to have had such a good response to the mining tender and is pleased to be working with CA Blackwell. This is another milestone for Wolf and a headline mining project for Britain.”
