Watpac Limited Provides Update on Mining Services Contract at Cockatoo Island

Watpac Limited noted that following the appointment of receivers and managers to Pluton Resources Limited on October 31, 2014, the company took steps to suspend its existing mining services contract for works at Cockatoo Island (contract). Watpac also indicated that it expected to meet with Pluton's receivers earlier this week, following which the company would assess the status of the contract and whether to resume mining services at Cockatoo Island or proceed to terminate the contract. Over the past few days Watpac has held several discussions with Pluton's new receivers from KordaMentha in relation to the status of the contract. Encouragingly, Watpac has recently agreed to complete some limited scope works on site, under the direction of KordaMentha and on a fully indemnified basis in relation to payment for these services. Since this agreement was made, Watpac has continued discussions with KordaMentha in relation to the provision of other future works and is hopeful of reaching an arrangement to undertake further activities at Cockatoo Island under KordaMentha's instruction. The company will continue to keep the market informed of any further developments on the contract.
