Centrals were engaged by BHP to design, supply, construct, and commission of a New Explosive Magazine Facility.

Critical planning was required for the temporary storage utilising Relocatable Explosive Magazine storage units (REMs) of stock explosive boosters and detonators whist relocating the existing permanent explosive magazine storage units from the existing ‘A’ Deposit Explosive Magazine Facility to the newly constructed Explosive Magazine Facility location, to ensure Mining production could continue without disruption. Once the New Explosive Magazine Facility was operational, the existing ‘A’ Deposit Explosive Magazine Facility was demolished to enable safe mining of the extension of the ‘A’ Deposit pit.
