Lancewood mine accommodation camp seems to be in the middle of nowhere, however it was originally built to supply housing to the workers of the missing link rail project.

The camp is about a 30 minute drive in good weather and road conditions from Burton mine, but can take well over an hour in bad weather due to the red dirt road. The camp is well laid out, has the regular features such as wet mess ( pub ) gym, common room, large dinning area etc.

One different thing about this camp is the covered walk ways to just about everywhere in the camp which is somewhat surprising. Lancewood mine accommodation camp is a little unique to the Bowen Basin due to its remote nature, being more like some of the remote WA projects as there is no utility power or phone on site, power is from generators and phones are mobile only. The camp is well set up for day shift, with generous and tasty meals, accommodation being quite comfortable, night shift not so great as there is very few staying there working nights at time of inspection and the dinning room opens late leaving only 15 minutes to scoff your food down and get on the road to make pre start in the various mines around.

At the time of inspection Lancewood mine camp was servicing contractors from Burton mine, road workers from various Bowen Basin road improvement projects as well as contractors from nearby mine leases engaged in exploration and other pre-mining development projects. Lancewood camp's onsite management is Cater Care.

The only other downside of this camp is the weak phone reception, telstra is all that works as is common with these camps but only outside and very low reception (1bar, 2 if you're lucky) internet service is pretty much non existent. Dayshift workers will expect 7/10 for this camp (losing 1 for the road) night shift workers will expect 6/10 for this camp. (loosing 1 for the road and further 1 for meal times). The camp is currently under care and maintenance.
