Bird awarded additional contracts at ArcelorMittal Mont-Wright Mine

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — Bird Construction Inc. has been awarded two new contracts at the ArcelorMittal Mont-Wright Mine in Quebec as well as the 2Nations Bird joint venture for Fine Tailings works on BHP’s Jansen Stage 1 Potash Project in Saskatchewan.

The combined value of the awards is over $110 million.  

The heavy civil team at Bird has been involved with construction at the Mont-Wright Mine since its inception almost 50 years ago and the recent awards include the Irene Pit Development and the Hesse 4 project. The pit development, which will take place over the next two-and-a-half years, consists of stripping of overburden, drilling and blasting, and loading and hauling of 24 million tonnes of waste and ore materials.

On the Hesse 4 Project, Bird will increase the tailing pond capacity at the mine, requiring 900,000 cubic metres of earth to be moved, indicates a release.

Following the awards for concrete foundations work and site services at Jansen Stage 1 earlier in the year, the new award adds scope for stripping, haulage, gravel road surfacing, access roads construction, drainage and piping work, and erosion protection, adds the release. The 2Nations Bird is a partnership between Bird, Beardy’s and Okemasis Cree Nation’s Willow Cree Developments General Partner Inc. and Fishing Lake First Nation’s Development Corporation, FLFN Ventures.
