Thiess through Majwe Mining JV, has secured a AUD 1.7 billion contract at Debswana Diamond Company’s Jwaneng Mine Cut 9 project in Botswana. Majwe, a joint venture between Thiess (70 per cent) and long-term local partner Bothakga Burrow Botswana (30 per cent), will provide full scope mining services over nine years, including drill and on-bench services, mine planning, equipment maintenance, load and haul, and mining operations.

This new volume-based contract follows Majwe’s successful completion of the Cut 8 project at the diamond mine in November 2018.

Mr Michael Wright, CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer, said that “This new contract strengthens Thiess’ presence in Botswana and builds on our operational and technical teams’ solid performance at Jwaneng since 2011. The relationship developed between Majwe and client Debswana Diamond Company, owned by the Botswana Government and De Beers, is a testament to all involved with the project.”
