Contract Type
Fixed & Variable Schedule of Rates

Contract Duration
November 2020 to April 2024

Scope
Rehabilitation, declining, lateral and vertical development, stope production using longhole methods.

Byrnecut will commence onsite with rehabilitation duties initially, transitioning to development and production activities.

Wiluna has a rich mining history spanning two centuries, from the first discovery of gold in 1897. Byrnecut is proud to be involved with the rebirth of this historic precinct.

The Wiluna operations, with which Byrnecut is involved, comprise the Happy Jack, Essex and the East lodes. These mining areas are accessed from three separate open pits.

Byrnecut will offer a complete underground mining service. The initial dewatering and rehabilitation program of the old decline will be followed by a new decline excavation and replacement of the mine infrastructure. Production from multiple lodes will commence shortly thereafter.

The mine employs an uphole stoping method, with ore extracted using autonomously guided remote-controlled loaders. Byrnecut are market leaders in the utilisation of the Sandvik Automine Autonomous Guidance System for remote-controlled loaders.
The Wiluna mine is quite remote, with access via sealed and unsealed roads. The contract is operated 365 days per year, 24 hours per day, with an anticipated workforce of over 140 people, working on a fly-in, fly-out roster from Perth.
