In the history of JV Engineering (24 years) many significant size projects have been successfully completed.

The flagship projects in recent years have established the business as successful peer in the fabrication and installation project space.

Two typical examples are listed; these are in no way the limit or extend of our supply:

Boddington

Project Overview:

Newmont’s Boddington Gold Mine (BGM) is located about 130km south-east of Perth in Western Australia. The $2.4bn project was initially a three-way joint venture between Newmont Mining, AngloGold Ashanti and Newcrest Mining. In 2009, Newmont purchased AngloGold Ashanti’s shares to become the sole owner of Boddington.

Boddington is not only the largest gold mine in Australia, but also the largest producing gold and copper mine on the southern hemisphere. It is poised to become the highest producing mine once production ramps up over the next few years.

Commercial production began in 2009 and the mine reached two million ounces of gold production in August 2012.

Currently the 74m Boddington steel thickener is the largest in the world and was manufactured in segments and installed on site.

The project had a taught schedule and was delivered by JV Engineering team on time and within budget.

Scope of Work:

JV Engineering’s scope of work included supply, fabrication and installation as follows:

  • 74m thickener
  • 2 off 38m thickeners
  • 18 off flotation cells
  • Spare parts

Karara

Project Overview:

Karara is a joint venture between AnSteel Group (52.16%), one of China’s biggest steel makers and iron ore miners, and Gindalbie Metals Ltd (47.84%). It is the first major magnetite operation in the Mid-West Region.

This world-class Karara Project is located 200km east of Geraldton, Western Australia. It consists of a substantial, long-life, magnetite concentrate operation plus a smaller-scale hematite operation.

As part of the development, Karara has invested more than $1 billion in new common-use infrastructure in the Mid-West region, including a new 85km rail line, a dedicated 16Mtpa export facility in Geraldton Port, a 330kV power line, and a 140km water pipeline.
Based on exceptional performance the JV Engineering team site was requested to remain on site for the further year for additional installations on the Karara site under the EPC engineering company.

Scope of Work:

JV Engineering’s scope of work included fabrication, supply and installation as follows:

  • 35m thickener
  • 55m thickener
  • Spare parts
  • Labour hire
