20 April, 2021

A contract to build a processing plant at the Norseman gold project in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia has been won by GR Engineering. The company will conduct engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the site’s processing plant.

GR engineering worked alongside Pantoro for two months to finalise the contract. Pantoro own a 50 per cent share in the project under a joint venture (JV) with Norseman Gold.

“GR Engineering is pleased to have been awarded the EPC contract for the project. We have worked collaboratively with Pantoro over the past two months and look forward to continuing to engage closely with Pantoro to deliver safe and successful outcomes for the project,” he said.

“GR Engineering continues to build its contracted pipeline of work across a diverse commodity base and increase its revenue and earnings visibility for FY22 (2022 financial year).”

Norseman was previously Australia’s longest continuously-running gold mine from 1935 until its closure in 2014. It has a has a mineral resource of 4.4 million ounces of gold (on a 100 per cent basis).

An initial inventory of around 500,000 ounces of gold will support the mine’s restart, a production plan developed by Pantoro. The site is one of the highest grade fields in the Yilgarn Craton.

GR Engineering was recently awarded a $75.5 million contract for Calidus Resources’ Warrawoona Gold project in Western Australia.
