In a major international competitive bidding process, the metallurgical & material handling business of L&T Construction has been awarded a large order from MA’ADEN Gold and Base Metal Company (MGBM), wholly owned subsidiary of Saudi Arabia Mining Company (MA’ADEN) for setting up Mansourah Massarrah Gold project.

The end client MGBM manages production and sale of gold, copper, silver, and zinc, with gold accounting for the biggest business segment.
