In July 2017, GR started proceedings in the Supreme Court of Western Australia to claim A$9.9 million, plus interest and costs, over the Davyhurst plant refurbishment contract.

The price for the contract, entered into in September 2016, was $18.5 million, including variations for additional works.

Eastern Goldfields said at the time that the contract price was $12.5 million, and it had paid $10.4 million.

GR issued Eastern Goldfields with a statutory demand for $6.6 million, and Eastern Goldfields alleged the wrongful suspension of works and raised an associated offsetting claim for delay costs of about $6.8 million in seeking to set aside the statutory demand.
