PRESS RELEASE: The 36-month extension will see Thiess continue delivering coal mining, overburden removal and run-of-mine rehandling services.

CIMIC Group chief executive Michael Wright noted: “We’ve been working with Anglo at Dawson for eight years, and I’m pleased the relationship continues to prosper.”

Thiess has a long history operating at the Dawson mine, being part of the original joint venture of Thiess Peabody Mitsui Coal established in 1962 to own and operate what was then known as Moura mine. More recently, a joint venture of Thiess and fellow CIMIC Group company Sedgman designed, built and commissioned the coal-handling preparation plant at Dawson in 2008.
