Heron Awards Underground Mining Contract
Heron Resources Limited has awarded the Underground Mining contract for the Company’s wholly-owned Woodlawn Zinc-Copper Project (“Project”) located near Tarago, 250km southwest of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, to specialist underground mining contractor, PYBAR Mining Services (“PYBAR”).
PYBAR is an Australian owned and operated company with a long track record in metalliferous underground mining operations and has an outstanding reputation in the safe and timely execution of project works. PYBAR will mobilise to site within the next three months and is expected to commence underground mining operations at Woodlawn during August.
Heron’s Managing Director, Wayne Taylor, said, “The award of the underground mining contract for Woodlawn is a key step on the path to commencing production at Woodlawn in the first quarter of 2019. We undertook a very competitive tender process and we are pleased to have awarded the Woodlawn contract to PYBAR. In addition to their strong capability to undertake the proposed works, we see a significant advantage in their local New South Wales base for providing rapid project support. We look forward to working with PYBAR as we commence development and mining operations at Woodlawn.”
PYBAR’s CEO, Brendan Rouse, said “PYBAR is delighted to be working with Heron at the Woodlawn Project. We look forward to bringing our strong local presence and innovative approach to Woodlawn and working in close collaboration with Heron’s technical team to deliver the Project successfully.”
