Kalgoorlie-based mining contractor Hampton Transport Services has won a contract for haulage work at Empire Resources’ Penny’s Find gold mine for an undisclosed sum.
Family-owned Hampton will transport gold ore from the Penny’s Find mine - east of Kalgoorlie - 63 kilometres by road to the Lakewood Mill on the Kalgoorlie-Boulder outskirts.
Empire in October contracted NRW Holdings to undertake mining operations at Penny’s Find.
Today, Empire said it was finalising commercial terms and conditions for the mining contract to allow full-scale mining at Penny’s Find to begin shortly.
Empire shares gained 9.5 per cent to 2.3 cents each at 11am.
