A joint venture between Perth-based companies Clough and RUC Cementation Mining Contractors, which are both owned by South Africa’s Murray & Roberts, has secured two mining contracts in Mongolia.
The GCR Mongolia JV, which also includes Mongolia-based Gobi Infrastructure Partners, has been awarded the design and construction contract for the blind sink and concrete line of two shafts at the Oyu Tolgoi mine.
The JV has also won a contract to build the underground material handling system for stage one of the mine, which is located in the southern Gobi Desert in Mongolia.
The copper and gold mine is jointly owned by the Mongolian government (34 per cent) and Canadian miner Turquoise Hill Resources (66 per cent), with Rio Tinto managing the mine since 2010.
“Clough as part of the GCR Mongolia Joint Venture welcomes the opportunity to continue contributing to the progress of the underground development of the Oyu Tolgoi project,” he said.
