We are helping to put together a construction support facility at Rio Tinto’s most recent development – Amrun Mine in the Industrial Area in Weipa, Queensland.


WGA teamed up with Rio Tinto and Goodline to offer an array of engineering services, including civil, structural, and electrical aspects, for this facility. That’s not all! – it also features a state-of-the-art soil testing laboratory to further enhance operational efficiency.

Our team, who constantly strive to work smarter, fearlessly took on the challenges posed by the unique, remote location. On-site generators for power and thoughtfully integrated septic tanks within the building’s design are some great examples of solution-focused delivery of this self-contained facility.


Amrun mine is one of three bauxite mines and produces up to 22.8Mt of bauxite annually.  The new construction support installation will accommodate an office and crib amenities for a team of over 100 individuals who oversee the Torro Tailings Storage Facility in the vicinity of the mine.

The Torro Tailings Storage Facility is included in the following sectors & services.
