Staffs’ Wardell Armstrong welcome HS2 CEO to see progress on route between West Midlands and Crewe

Multidisciplinary environmental, engineering and mining consultancy, Wardell Armstrong, has welcomed Mark Thurston - HS2 Ltd's CEO - to a worksite where a team of environmental specialists are working on the early works phase of HS2 construction.

Early works on the new 36-mile stretch of high speed railway began soon after it was approved by MPs in February 2021. At peak construction, delivering this major section of railway infrastructure will support six and a half thousand jobs. Stretching from Fradley in Staffordshire to just south of Crewe in Cheshire, this newest phase of HS2 includes two tunnels, 17 viaducts, and 65 bridges.

Wardell Armstrong, which has been Net Zero since 2020, secured the contract with HS2’s first environmental works contractor, Balfour Beatty, in September 2020, building on the pipeline of work the company has delivered on the first two phases of HS2 since 2018.

Visiting a site Wardell Armstrong are working at, HS2’s CEO Mark Thurston said: “Work has now begun to prepare the ground between the West Midlands and Crewe to allow the construction of  the next phase of HS2. It is fantastic that Wardell Armstrong, a local business and one of some eighty in Staffordshire, is on board with HS2 to provide its expertise as we begin the early stages of work on the project. As momentum builds on our programme for the section between the West Midlands and Crewe, there will be thousands of contract opportunities for local businesses to become part of this exciting national endeavour and get involved in this once-in-a-generation mega project.”

The firm’s repeated success in winning work on the HS2 project has enabled Wardell Armstrong to expand its workforce. Including the head office in Stoke-on-Trent, the business now has 13 offices across the UK, and has been able to expand its workforce to surpass 500. They have over 100  people working on HS2, with staff in its ecology, archaeology, heritage, hydrogeology, health and safety, engineering teams all supporting the delivery of Britain’s new high speed railway. The firm is currently recruiting for further specialist roles in the UK.

Wardell Armstrong’s Managing Director, Keith Mitchell, said: “Being involved in HS2 has given us an excellent opportunity to expand and develop our team in Stoke-on-Trent and nationally. We provide specialist environmental and engineering support along the length of the route, working with the HS2 team and their contractors to mitigate environmental impact and enhance biodiversity. The project has helped us to significantly innovate and grow our business and create employment in the Staffordshire region and the wider UK.”

As the construction of HS2 gathers further pace, there are thousands of contract opportunities available, with many more associated jobs. To date over 20,000 people are supporting the construction of HS2, and nearly 2,400 UK businesses delivering the work.

Sara Williams, CEO of the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce said: “HS2 is an amazing opportunity for businesses in Staffordshire – and beyond – to work together to deliver something that will last generations, transform economies and help with the levelling up agenda. We have found HS2 an excellent partner, keen to make a positive difference through their investment and provide a legacy for the future.”

Evolution Mining to acquire Ernest Henry Mining from Glencore


Glencore and Evolution Mining Limited (Evolution) have entered into a binding agreement for the sale and purchase of Glencore’s 100% interest in Ernest Henry Mining Pty Ltd, the owner of the Ernest Henry Mining (EHM) copper-gold mine in Queensland, Australia.

Glencore will receive A$1 billion, comprising A$800 million on the closing of the transaction and a further A$200 million payable 12 months after the transaction closes.

Evolution will assume full ownership and operational control of the copper-gold mine and will enter into a copper concentrate offtake agreement and separate ore tolling agreement with Glencore.

Evolution, a local Australian company, has worked in partnership with Glencore for the past five years at EHM and has emerged as a globally relevant low-cost gold producer with a strong growth profile.

Jake Klein, Evolution Mining, Executive Chairman, commented: “We have long coveted to own Ernest Henry. It is a world class asset, in Australia, and one which we know extremely well due to our successful investment in the asset in 2016 and we are proud that it will once again be 100% Australian owned. The acquisition is consistent with our strategy, materially improves the quality of our portfolio and delivers both strong cashflow and mine life extension opportunities.

The site management team have an outstanding track record of operational delivery and we are delighted they will be joining Evolution and look forward to working with them to make this an even better operation.

We are also pleased to be continuing our strong relationship with Glencore and that the product will continue to be treated in the local region at its Mt Isa smelter and Townsville refinery.”

Gary Nagle, CEO, Glencore, commented: “Evolution has been a strong partner in the Ernest Henry mine for five years. They share our way of working and commitment to operating responsibly across all aspects of the business.”

Glencore’s commitment to north-west Queensland will continue with the Mount Isa Mines copper and zinc complex, copper smelter and Townsville copper refinery.  Glencore will also increase its focus on lower-cost, long-life copper assets in its global portfolio like those in Africa and South America.

Glencore will offtake 100% of the copper concentrate produced at EHM. Glencore will continue to be among Australia’s leading producers and exporters of the green metals that underpin the global transition to a low-carbon future.

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

28. October 2021 (1940 Clicks)

Ensuring social acceptance for mining projects, and especially when it comes to settling ponds for mine tailings, is a huge challenge. Modern geomonitoring integrates data obtained from orbiting satellites, from overflying aircraft and from the surface of the ground, as well as from below it, to create a transparent and space and time-referenced process understanding. Geomonitoring technology is therefore an important tool for risk management and communication over the course of the mining lifecycle.
