The engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and operational readiness contracts are for the complex’s processing plant facility and Karumba port.

Specifically, the project involves civil, structural, mechanical, piping and electrical work for additions to the facility, as well as refurbishment, commissioning works and readiness services.

The award comes after Sedgman completed a feasibility study of Century Zine’s restart last November. The study also involved the concentrate pipeline and Karumba port.

Early site works began the following month, and the pair are on track for production to begin once again during this year’s September quarter.

“This contract is a valued addition to our mineral processing portfolio,”Sedgman managing director Grant Fraser said, adding it was pleased to continue collaborating with the miner to deliver a full project cycle service offering, adding value from feasibility study through to operation.

“The Century Zinc mine is an important part of the Queensland mining industry, and we are looking forward to re-starting the mine and using our technical expertise to achieve successful outcomes for our client.”
