Toxfree has announced being awarded a five-year contract with BHP Billiton for the Olympic Dam operation, which will start in June.
Located 560 kilometres north of Adelaide, Olympic Dam is Australia’s largest underground mine, outputting copper cathode, uranium oxide concentrate, gold and silver.
The environmental solutions company will provide both industrial services and waste management services to BHP Billiton for the Olympic Dam site.
The contract scope includes management of all wastes generated from mining operations, industrial cleaning and quarantine services, landfill management and recycling.
Steve Gostlow, Managing Director of Toxfree, said “Our core strategy is focussed on providing integrated industrial service and waste management solutions for clients like BHP Billiton.
“We’ve been able to demonstrate to client’s improvement in productivity and cost savings without compromising our values of safety, reliability and sustainability and we are very optimistic about the opportunity to demonstrate our capability to BHP Billiton through the award of the Olympic Dam contract.”
Coinciding with the Olympic Dam contract win, Toxfree also revealed that it had signed a two-year extension of its waste management
contract with Chevron, taking it through until 2021.
