NORTH BAY, Ontario - Redpath Australia, a subsidiary of Canadian The Redpath Group, has won a major mine development and construction contract at Mount Lyell, Tasmania. The contract was awarded by Copper Mines of Tasmania, a subsidiary of Vedanta of London, UK.

The three-year contract started Oct. 1, 2010, two years after Redpath established its office in Brisbane. Work will include 9,900 metres of decline and level development and 8.1 million tonnes of ore production. Redpath will employ close to 200 local workers.

The Mount Lyell mine is developed for sub-level caving with decline access and shaft skipping. The mill flowsheet uses conventional flotation and filtration. The operation produced 23,777 tonnes of copper contained in concentrate during the 2009-10 period.

"Together with earlier contracts, more recent significant awards such as Golden Grove in Western Australia and Mount Lyell has helped to further secure our presence in Australia in a relatively short time. It is the result of great effort from all involved in identifying, assessing, tendering, winning, recruiting and mobilizing," said Redpath Australia CEO, Gordon Shannon.
