The contract for NRW’s Action Drill and Blast is estimated to be worth $60 million over the three years.

The Middlemount open cut mine had saleable coal production of 996,000 tonnes in the September quarter, with Yancoal saying the switch to using an owner-operator model in June had delivered significant benefits.
