DALLAS, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:JEC) has been awarded a contract by Newcrest Mining Limited to provide underground materials handling services as part of the Cadia expansion feasibility study for one of Australia's largest gold mining operations located in New South Wales. This contract award builds on Jacobs' mining and minerals business and long history of working with Newcrest across the company's Cadia Valley operations.
"During the previous study phase, our mining and minerals experts helped identify a low capital intensity solution as part of an integrated team," said Jacobs Mining, Minerals and Technology Senior Vice President Andrew Berryman. "By embracing an owners' mindset and applying our experience in underground mining, materials handling and expansion projects, our integrated approach has the potential to deliver an impressive return on capital for Newcrest."
