Sheffield Resources awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the building of a 7.5 Mt/y mineral processing plant and associated facilities at its Thunderbird mineral sands project in Western Australia to GR Engineering Services. The contract sum is around A$366.3 million ($264 million) with commencement of work subject to GR Engineering being issued with a full notice to proceed. This, in itself, is dependent on Sheffield satisfying remaining financing conditions ahead of a final investment decision being made to pursue the development of the project. GR Engineering’s award comes after it was engaged as preferred tenderer in October 2017 to progress early works on the project. The company has substantially progressed detailed design and procurement activities during this time, GR Engineering said.

Delivery is scheduled to occur over approximately two years from the date of site mobilisation, which is anticipated in the June quarter of 2019, following the wet season.

GR Engineering’s scope of work under the contract extends to the engineering design, procurement, construction, commissioning and testing of all process and non-process infrastructure for the project, including a wet concentrate plant, mineral separation plant, low temperature roasting plant, administration buildings, bore fields and high voltage power distribution in addition to all civil scope items. It will also provide operations support for a six month term post-completion.
