McAleese has won a four year, $65 million haulage contract with Norton Gold Fields.
The contract will start next month and see McAleese haul around 3.6 million tonnes of gold ore annually, and also includes the provision of road maintenance for Norton.
Mark Rowsthorn, McAleese CEO, said “we are pleased to have reaffirmed our long standing partnership with Norton by successfully re-tendering for their Kalgoorlie Goldfields work”.
“To complement its existing fleet of maxi-quad road trains first introduced in 2012 and to deliver even greater haulage capacity, McAleese Resources will invest in additional quad road trains that utilise eight wheel drive prime movers coupled with larger capacity quad trailers,” he said.
“McAleese has also introduced several key safety features and operational system improvements across the Resources business, including the introduction of IVMS (In Vehicle Monitoring Systems), and EBS (Electronic Brake Safety Systems) in all of its trailling equipment.”
McAleese employs more than 150 people in Kalgoorlie and operates 45 unites across the WA Goldfields.
