NRW in joint venture with both of our indigenous partners, Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi Foundation Limited (NYFL) and Eastern Guruma were initially awarded Solomon Phase 1 works to supply labour and equipment to complete bulk earthworks, drill & blast and culvert installation at Fortescue’s Solomon Mine.
In addition to the initial contract the JV was awarded construction of temporary magazine areas along with the LV1 access road, the duration of this variation was approximately three months.
NRW had 80 pieces of major mining fleet based at Solomon with a manning capacity of 450 people.
Total volumes moved throughout the job were on average 1,000,000 BCM per month.
