Perenti’s Ausdrill has officially started a three-year contract at the Yancoal and Peabody-owned Middlemount coal mine in Queensland in Australia. Two new Caterpillar MD6310 rotary blasthole drills are up and running, as of January 1, as part of a full turnkey drill and blast contract for the client, Ausdrill said.

Middlemount produces low volatile pulverised coal injection coal and hard coking coal, with contracted rail and port capacity through Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and Abbot Point Port, in Queensland. It is an open-pit mine, 90 km northeast of Emerald in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. Full scale operations commenced in November 2011 with mining activities using conventional truck and shovel techniques.
