In December 2021, Thiess was awarded a three-year contract to provide mining services at the Anthill Project, including operating and maintaining two mining fleets to support Austral Resources’ copper production requirements.
Thiess successfully mobilised the project and undertook site preparation and civil works over Christmas and during a global pandemic. Mining commenced in early 2022.
Since project inception, Thiess has applied industry best practice mining operations with uncompromising safety and environmental standards.
Thiess currently delivers a fully resourced load and haul service, demonstrating our experience with all aspects of daily site life, including people and their health and safety, mine management systems and processes, asset management, and environmental and community management.
The Anthill Project sits within Austral Resources Lady Annie Project and is expected to produce over 40,000 tonnes of copper over four years. The ore will be mined from two pits and processed at the nearby Mount Kelly processing facility.
Throughout delivery at the Anthill Project, our team will continue its focus on building strong community relationships to achieve long-term social, environmental and economic outcomes.
