Misconduct claims mire Leighton's mining contract win

LEIGHTON Contractors has scored a three-year contract worth $249 million to operate Central Queensland's Isaac Plains coal mine, employing 160 people.

The open-cut site outside of Moranbah is owned by Japanese powerhouse Sumitomo Corporation and Brazil's Vale Australia.

Leighton's securing of the lucrative deal comes just as it begins to rebuild its tarnished reputation after a series of revelations were published in metropolitan media suggested misconduct at parent company Leighton Holdings.

Leighton Contractors managing director Craig Laslett said the contract showed the group's reputation for expertise and value remained strong.
