Macmahon Holdings (ASX:MAH)
has been selected by Calidus Resources (ASX:CAI)
as the preferred mining contractor for the Warrawoona gold project in Western Australia.
Macmahon estimates the open cut mining work in the Pilbara region will generate approximately $220 million in revenue over 54 months and require capital expenditure of around $30 million.
