Macmahon estimates the contract will generate around $200 million in revenue over the three-year term. Signing of the mining services agreement is expected to occur in the near future.

Dawson South is part of the larger Dawson open-cut operational project. The complex is a joint venture between Anglo American and Japan’s Mitsui Group.

Macmahon CEO and Managing Director Michael Finnegan noted that its project “further strengthens [its] growing east coast presence” in the region.
