Heron Rejects Another Sedgman Claim Over Woodlawn Contract

Sedgman’s latest claim against Heron Resources over a contract at the Woodlawn project has been met with another rejection due to a violation of a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) framework, according to the base metals developer.

The CIMIC Group’s subsidiary has lifted its $49.9 million claim in February this year to $53 million for its works at Heron’s zinc-copper project in New South Wales.

The contract superintendent has approved only new variations for work recently requested by Heron, totalling $76,082, as per the formal contract provisions. The superintendent has rejected the remainder of Sedgman’s progress claim.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was expected to generate revenue to Sedgman of around $107 million over 18 months.
