SRG Global Limited (ASX: SRG), headquartered in Subiaco, Australia, provides engineering-led construction, maintenance and mining services through the entire lifecycle of an asset primarily in Australia.

On April 9th, 2019, the company informed the market that its Geotech business had been awarded an ~ $ 18-million contract for ground support works with Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines (KCGM), a joint venture owned by Newmont Australia and Barrick Gold Corporation in Western Australia. SGM has performed a range of services at the mine since 1997 and has developed a highly specialised plant to meet the demands of the unique Super Pit environment. The contract covers both in phase ground support, rock fall mitigation and rock face remediation.
In the same month, the company signed an initial three-year term contract with gold company Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) to extend the terms of its drill and blast operations at the Cowal, Mt Rawdon and Mt Carlton operations for a further two years. The works under this umbrella agreement are expected to generate revenues of around $ 115 million over the five-year term (if the two-year option is exercised) and will require minimum growth capital due to SRG Global’s existing fleet.
Evolution Mining is one of the leading gold producers in Australia with five wholly-owned gold mines located in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia and also an economic interest in the Ernest Henry copper-gold mine in Queensland.
