Scott Dryland says the contract is another positive step for its indigenous workforce.

A joint venture between Njamal Services and Pilbara Resource Group has secured a 12-month labour contract with BGC Contracting at the Mt Webber iron ore mine in the Pilbara.

Under the agreement, NPJV will provide mobile plant and dump truck operators for BGC, which is the mining contractor at the Atlas Iron mine.

The contract is expected to generate between 10 and 20 full-time positions, with a majority to be indigenous workers.

NPJV has previously worked at the Mt Webber site providing construction and mining services.

NPJV managing director Scott Dryland said the contract was another positive step for its indigenous workforce.

“This contract win is not only great news for the business but an exciting outcome for the Njamal people because of the additional jobs that will be created,” he said.

“The demand for qualified labour through this contract is likely to create additional employment opportunities for non-indigenous workers as well.

“Our business model of combining high level mining and contracting experience delivered within state-of-the-art technology and management systems continues to give us a real point of difference in the market.”

The news also follows a recent $1.5 million contract to install offices, crib rooms and ablutions at Pilbara Minerals’ Pilgangoora lithium project.
