JSW has been completing grade control requirements on site since August 2011. The works will continue to utilise one of JSW's specialist multi-capacity reverse circulation drill rigs.
JSW has also been awarded a new 18-month contract with South32. JSW will continue to provide blasthole drilling services for the Boddington bauxite mine using four drill rigs. The company has provided all blasthole drilling services to the mine since March 2013.
Hughes Drilling's managing director, Bob Hughes, said the company was delighted to continue working with South32 because the new contract highlighted its strength in delivering safe, long-term cost effective drilling solutions to its clients.
