Macmahon Holdings Ltd. has been selected to provide surface mining services for Anglo American’s Dawson mine in Queensland, Australia, at the Dawson South operations, from July 2021. Dawson South forms part of the Dawson mine, an open-cut metallurgical coal mine, which is a joint venture between Anglo American and Japan’s Mitsui Group.

“We look forward to working very closely with our new client to ensure a smooth transition period and continuity of safe operations,” Macmahon CEO and Managing Director Michael Finnegan said. “This new project further strengthens our growing East Coast presence.”

Macmahon estimates the contract will generate around $200 million in revenue over the three-year term. Signing of the mining services agreement is expected to occur in the near future.
