Glencore has awarded Thiess a $230 million, one-year contract extension at Mt Owen Coal Mine, near Ravensworth in the Hunter Valley, NSW.

The extension will see Thiess continuing full service delivery at Mount Owen for at least another 3 years until December 2016, and includes an option for an additional one year contract extension until December 2017.

Thiess Managing Director Bruce Munro said Thiess has operated the Mount Owen Mine for 17 years.

“This extension confirms the durability of this longstanding relationship and Thiess will continue to work with Glencore to deliver greater productivity” Mr Munro said.

Leighton Holdings Chief Executive Officer Hamish Tyrwhitt welcomed the extension for one of the

Leighton Group’s longest running mines.

“Mt Owen is geologically complex and our ability to deliver value over such a long period through highly

variable market conditions is a tribute to the mining expertise in the Group,” Mr Tyrwhitt said.
