BHP extends Thiess contract at Mt Arthur South

Thiess has secured a six-year mining services contract extension with BHP for the Mt Arthur South coal operations in New South Wales, Australia.

The A$$1.9 billion contract will see Thiess continuing to operate and maintain mining equipment to support BHP’s production requirements, and working with the miner and local community toward the planned 2030 mine closure.

“This contract extension acknowledges Thiess’ strong safety record and ongoing operational performance, and builds on the longstanding relationship between Thiess and BHP that started more than 30 years ago,” said Thiess Group Executive Chair and CEO Michael Wright.

“We are strongly aligned with BHP in our commitment to diversity in our workforce, as demonstrated by our award-winning MASITE program, which has resulted in significant increases in the number of our local Indigenous and female employees.”

Thiess has provided services at Mt Arthur, located 5 kilometres south of Muswellbrook, since 2017.
