Since July 2016, the Waanyi ReGen Joint Venture (WRJV) has been carrying out care and maintenance activities at Century Mine in northern Queensland. The WRJV has a 40% Indigenous workforce and is the sole Indigenous contractor currently operating at Century.
The contract works include maintaining the complex site wide dewatering network, ensuring ongoing electrical compliance, spontaneous combustion management, erosion control and maintenance / servicing of plant and equipment.
The initial contract for the works was with MMG; however the mine and contract was sold in February 2017 to New Century Resources (NCR). NCR recently granted the WRJV a 12 month extension to our contract and the WRJV looks forward to building a long and mutually beneficial relationship together at Century.
