Yagahong Alliance into positive territory

The Yagahong Alliance won its first contract in 2015, not long after Geraldton-based Central Earthmoving and the Yugunga-Nya people, the traditional owners of the area around Meekatharra, established the enterprise.

That first deal was with Sandfire Resources at the DeGrussa mine, and the alliance has backed this up by winning an $8.5 million contract at Sandfire’s nearby Monty project.

Central Earthmoving managing director Craig Patterson said the initial contract had given the joint venture an opportunity to prove its credentials.
