“We have been working with BMC at Poitrel since 2006, providing a range of services including project management, surface mining, engineering and maintenance,” Leighton Mining general manager Greg Fokes said.

“This contract extension recognises the high-quality production and safety performance at the mine over recent years and I congratulate the team at Poitrel on this milestone, which is testament to their commitment.”

About 35 kilometres southeast of Moranbah, the mine has 3 million tonnes per annum of coking coal capacity and employs about 220 workers from Leighton.

BHP owns 80% of the mine while Mitsui owns 20%.

Leighton shares are down 45c to $30.85 this morning.
