Rock on Ground will initially provide an Atlas Copco D65 and Sandvik DP1500i drills and associated blasting and explosive supply equipment for the open pit drill and blast work which will commence in April 2017 and run initially for 13 months.
Managing Director for Rock on Ground – Alan Vickery stated: “We have worked closely and collaboratively with SMS at the Thunderbox Gold project where both companies are contracted separately to Saracen, and recently at the Ulysses West Gold project where ROG sub-contracted to SMS in their inaugural and highly successful full mining services contract. We are extremely excited about building on that relationship with SMS through the supply of services for this project, and more projects in the future as SMS evolves into a leading mining services contractor to match its successful equipment hire business.”
Saracen is a highly regarded, mid-tier Australian gold company that boasts a 300,000oz per annum production profile, ore reserves in excess of 1.6 million ounces of gold, and has a market capitalisation in excess of $1 billion.
