Leighton Holdings’ (LEI: ASX) Asian subsidiary has received a seven-year contract worth $420 million to provide mining services in Borneo.
The coal mining project, in the Indonesian-owned part of the island, involves the extraction of more than two million tonnes of high-quality thermal and coking coal per year.
Under the contract, Leighton will be responsible for providing project management, mine planning, surveying, supervision, site security, materials, heavy equipment, equipment maintenance, labour, transportation, medical services and site infrastructure.
The good news comes after Leighton slashed its full-year profit guidance last month after reporting deteriorating financial performances of its Brisbane Airport Link and Victorian desalination projects.
Leighton Asia was established in 1975.
