Heron Resources which is expected to start production at the Woodlawn mine, south of Goulburn soon, has been presented with additional costs for on-site construction.

 

Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor, Sedgman Pty Ltd is claiming an additional $49.9 million above the agreed $109 million for facilities at Woodlawn.

 

Heron Resources CEO, Wayne Taylor says his company is assessing the matter and will shortly respond, however he added that the claim is not in the spirit of the contract which has been negotiated.

A coating of dust over the Goulburn area today is the result of strong winds yesterday.

 

There were wind gusts of up to 80 kilometres an hour with visibility hampered because of airborne dust.

 

Weather sources say satellite imagery detected a large mass of dust building up over western NSW early yesterday afternoon.

 

The dust storm was created as blustery north-westerly winds picked up dry top-soil in drought stricken districts across the western and southern inland.
