Heavy-lift haulage specialists McAleese Group has just landed another major contract with an iron ore mine company. CEO Paul Garaty revealed that they will be moving another 2-3 million tonnes a year for miner Atlas Iron. Haulage will start in June at the Abydos iron ore mine in Western Australia.

The Abydos deal is the latest in a string of achievements by McAleese. The company recently snagged the haulage deal at Mt Dove iron ore mine and gained contract extensions for the Pardoo and Wodgina sites. These are on the back of a December announcement by Kalnorth Gold Mines that 440,000 tonnes of ore from its Lindsay’s Field tenement will be moved by McAleese. That haul starts this month and is expected to last 24 months.

Garaty said they are delighted to further extend their relationship with Atlas Iron by supporting the miner’s growth ambitions through the ongoing provision of a safe, flexible, and efficient bulk haulage service. He also stressed the importance of minimising the impact of their operations on local communities.
