NRW Holdings CEO Jules Pemberton says the current iron ore mine construction activity in the Pilbara is different to the boom of 2011-2013. He notes that the new mines being developed by BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group are to replace existing mines rather than to expand output. Pemberton adds that there are also no signs of an increase in labour costs or a skills shortage in the Pilbara. NRW was recently awarded a $57m contract for work on Fortescue’s Eliwana iron ore mine; the mining and civil contractor is also undertaking work on BHP’s South Flank mine.
