Macmahon Holdings Limited has been selected to provide surface mining services for Anglo American’s Dawson Mine in Queensland at the Dawson South operations, from July 2021.
The Dawson Mine commenced operations in 1961 and is one of the oldest coal mining operations in Central Queensland.
It was the first mine in Australia to export coal to Japan in 1961 and was the first mine to introduce draglines into its operation in 1963.
The Dawson Mine, a joint venture between Anglo American (51 per cent) and Mitsui Holdings (49 per cent), comprises three operating pits – North, Central and South.
Macmahon estimates the mining services contract at Dawson South will generate around $200 million in revenue over the three-year term.
