Amec Foster Wheeler said Friday it has won an engineering procurement and construction contract from Gruyere Management Pty Ltd worth AUD298 million ($226.8 million) for the Gruyere gold project. The contract will be jointly executed by Amec Foster and Civmec Construction and Engineering as a joint venture, according to a statement Friday.
The project, located about 200 kilometres east of Laverton, in Western Australia, is one of the largest undeveloped gold deposits in Australia. The mine is expected to be a large-scale open pit operation feeding a 7.5 million to 8.8 million tonnes per annum processing plant. Engineering work on the project has already commenced. Onsite work will commence in August 2017, the statement added. Gruyere Management is the agent and manager for the joint venture between Gold Road Resources Ltd and Gruyere Mining Company Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gold Fields Ltd (GFI).
