Gold Fields, Gold Road's Gruyere JV signs A$400M mining contract

The Gruyere joint venture, owned equally by Gold Road Resources Ltd. and Gold Fields Ltd., signed a five-year mining services contract with Downer EDI Ltd. worth A$400 million for the Gruyere gold project in Western Australia.

Downer EDI will start construction of the mining infrastructure in the March 2018 quarter, according to the Dec. 20 release.

A fleet of 225-tonne payload dump trucks, 400-tonne excavators, production blasthole drills and support equipment will move about 31 million tonnes of material per year.

In June, Gold Road raised the capital budget for the Gruyere project by 3.5% to A$532 million and deferred construction by two months following reviews of the feasibility study's engineering, procurement and construction.
