The contract is with Millennium Minerals, a subsidiary of Novo Resources Corp and are associated with the Nullagine gold project in Western Australia's Pilbara region. It has been awarded on a reimbursable cost basis.

The scope of works includes the refurbishment and upgrade of the gravity circuit and associated facilities to allow operations to restart.

Millennium's mine and processing plant were shut down in December.

Novo plans to restart the processing plant in early 2021.

Kalgoorlie Power Systems has restored power to the Millennium infrastructure. That will allow the GRES works to continue uninterrupted and for the Millennium offices, camp and other infrastructure to be commissioned over coming months.

Commercial discussions are ongoing over KPS re-establishing full scale power generation for the Millennium infrastructure.

Pilbara Resources Group has been appointed to make sure the camp is safe and ready for operations after nine months in mothballs.

It will test and tag of electrical equipment, service air conditioners and hot water systems, replace unserviceable cooking facilities and damaged flooring in the cooking and dining areas, and undertake early camp management until the permanent camp management work is competitively tendered.
