Lucas has recently commenced drilling the first of six artesian water bores for Rio Tinto’s Amrun Project located in Weipa.
The project scope is to complete six artesian water bores to a depth of approximately 800m for the Amrun Project. The mine was formally known as the South of Embley Mine. The purpose of the bores is to support the water requirements for the mining operation. Initially only one bore will be required to support construction with the balance coming online when mining operations begin.
