Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
We provide a wide range of heavy construction and mining, piling and pipeline installation services to customers in the Canadian oil sands, minerals mining, commercial and public construction and conventional oil and gas markets. Our primary market is the Alberta oil sands, where we support our customers’ mining operations and capital projects. While we provide services through all stages of an oil sands project’s lifecycle, our core focus is on providing recurring services, such as contract mining, during the operational phase. On a trailing 12-months basis to March 31, 2010, recurring services represented 89% of our oil sands business.
