Thiess will provide turnkey mining services including mine planning, explosives, drill and blast services, overburden and ore mining, and overarching technical support.

Marcelino Fernandez Verdes, CEO of Thiess parent company CIMIC, said the contract was testament to Thiess’s ability to deliver safe, cost‐effective and productive operations for our mining clients.

“We are continuing to tender for more mining work and expect further contracts to be awarded to the group in the near future,” Marcelino said.

“Following on from Thiess’s recent entry into Chile’s copper market, the Rocky’s Reward nickel project provides further diversification by both commodity and geography.”
