Under the contract, Maca will undertake crushing and screening of lump and fines, with work expected to commence in October.
The contract has an initial three-year term with an option to extend.
Maca will use new and existing crushing equipment.
Managing director Chris Tuckwell said it was pleasing to secure the new contract.
“Maca would like to thank BHP for the opportunity to work with them,” he said
“We look forward to a long-standing relationship with BHP, working closely together to ensure mutual success.”
