The formal commencement of construction at Woodsmith Mine follows the site’s formal naming in February and the enablement and preparatory works which have been ongoing since January.
There has been a smooth transition between preparatory works and formal construction works. This has also triggered section 106 payments commitments covering contributions to environmental improvements, tourism promotion, skills development, educational training and rail infrastructure.
Gareth Edmunds, External Affairs Director at Sirius commented:
“We continue to make good progress with the development of the Woodsmith Mine and continue to progress in line with schedule and budget”.Back to news archive
