Company news: Emeco & Sandfire Resources

Emeco provided guidance for its FY-20 result. The company expects an operating profit (EBITDA) of between $244-$247m – which is ahead of our expectations.  The reduction in the company’s gearing also remains on track. Pleasingly, the recently acquired Pit N Portal has demonstrated its strong position in underground mining - executing a five-year contract with nickel producer Mincor Resources NL (ASX: MCR).
