Thunderbird moves closer to construction as milestones achieved
Written on the 5 February 2018
Sheffield Resources' Thunderbird Mineral Sands Project has moved a step closer to construction after the company achieved a number of key milestones in the December quarter.
It's been a busy few months for Sheffield as they kicked off their Early Works Program at Thunderbird, located mid-way between Broome and Derby, and signed new sales agreements with customers in China.
Sheffield is working closely with Kimberley-based earth moving contractors and local businesses to undertake preliminary work, including the creation of access roads and readying the site for the installation of an accommodation village.
These activities are being undertaken in accordance with the Government approved Minor or Preliminary Works program and are delivering benefits to the region as Sheffield forges local partnerships and provides employment opportunities.
More opportunities will be created as Sheffield moves closer to finalising mining services arrangements as well as gas and electricity supply contracts. Sheffield is also advancing engineering and design activities ahead of construction start-up.
