Works under the new contract will be carried out in accordance with the original standards and specifications used by MDM during the original implementation of the uranium plant.

MDM chief executive officer Martin Smith said, "MDM are pleased to have secured work with another major blue chip mining company. We look forward to building a strong relationship with AngloGold Ashanti in the completion and commissioning of the MWS uranium plant."

MDM initially commenced the work on MWS project’s Phase 1B in January 2008, to double the throughput of the project from 650,000t per month to 1.283 million tons per month. The Phase 2 module was then completed in 2011.
