A major mining contract has been signed, which will see the extension of an existing joint venture’s participation in a Victorian coal operation. The joint venture, comprising Roche, Linfox and Thiess (RTL) has been awarded a contract to continue mining operations at the Yallourn mine in the LaTrobe Valley.
