Wagners secures a renewal of its haulage services contract with Glencore for the next four years.

As part of the deal, the diversified Australian construction materials and services firm will transport zinc ore and tailings between Glencore’s George Fisher and Lady Loretta Mines and the Mount Isa Mines metal processing facility.

The haulage services will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the term of the agreement, using a fleet of 22 triple and quad road train combinations.

Glencore owns and operates the George Fisher and Lady Loretta underground mines, located approximately 20km and 140km respectively from Mount Isa in north-west Queensland, along with a processing facility in Mount Isa responsible for the production of zinc, lead and copper concentrates.

Wagners’ scope of works will include the loading of the ore at the mine sites and its haulage to the processing facility in Mount Isa along with haulage of tailings from the processing facility back to both the George Fisher and Mount Isa Mines.

Up to 28 million tonnes of materials will be loaded and hauled between the mine sites and Mount Isa Mine processing facility

"Wagners are really proud to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with Glencore in the delivery of these integral services for the George Fisher and Lady Loretta mining operations," Wagners CEO Cameron Coleman says

"The employment opportunities that this project provides is significant with over 80 personnel required to deliver the services."

Wagners secured the renewal of its contract through a successful competitive tender process having demonstrated the required expertise and ability to deliver such an integral component of the mining operations having provided these services to Glencore since 2016.

 "We look forward to continuing our contribution toward Glencore’s operations over the next four years and the opportunities that this project and our relationship with Glencore provides both Wagners, our employees, our local supplier base and the region."

Wagners notes it has successfully undertaken similar haulage services for clients in the resources sector in recent years and remains engaged on a number of projects in the North West and Central Queensland and Northern Territory.
