30 Jan ICON prepares Groundwork for Colliery Extension near Delmas
30 January 2020 The ICON Group is close to completing the groundwork for the Canyon Coal Colliery Extension situated on the outskirts of Delmas. The contract awarded to ICON in October 2019, valued at R2,5million is expected to be complete in February 2020 in preparation for the extension of the colliery aimed at substantially increasing the mine’s production output.
“Our technical capability and keen pricing played a key role in winning this prestigious project, coupled with our extensive in-house range of bulk earthworks equipment”, states Wayne Neary, Managing Director for the ICON Group.
Wherever possible ICON is making use of local labour and services sourced from the surrounding communities in alignment with Canyon Coal’s commitment to developing the communities in which they operate.
Neary went on to state that safety at the mine is a top concern and there are very stringent safety requirements in place. ICON’s pro-active focus on safety ensured that the company is in full compliance with all criteria often exceeding the mine’s strict requirements.
