New coal mine reveals plans

Thursday 5th of January 2017 11:25:42 AM



130 kilometres north-west of Rockhampton plans are underway to develop the Styx Coal project which will potentially look to the region for up to 500 workers.

Fairway Coal and Styx Coal, wholly owned subsidiaries of Mineralogy Proprietary Limited, are behind the proposal.

Managing director of Fairway Coal, Nui Harris said the labour resources would be sourced from within the general local area as a drive in drive out workforce.

"The project will require the hiring of 200 employees during construction and 250 employees during operations with an option to increase to 500 employees should operations increase to maximum throughput tonnages," he said.

"A small portion of the workforce is anticipated to come from outside the broader central Queensland coalfields area on a fly-in fly-out basis."

Mr Harris said the current mine plan was based on construction starting in 2018 with first production in the same year, following a construction period of about six months.
