A mining services company won a tender for a $1 billion development in Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

Thiess recently secured the mining services contract for Pembroke Resources’ Olive Downs Coking Coal Project, 40km southeast of Moranbah.

From early 2023 the successful bidder will spend eight years on mine planning, removing overburden, drilling, blasting, loading, hauling, managing water, rehabilitating final landforms, and other full-service mining activities.

Thiess, which is owned by CIMIC Group, will also construct mine infrastructure, supply all mobile plant and equipment and become the statutory operator. AMR can reveal the deal is worth $1.5B for the first five years alone.

Jobseekers are invited to register their interest in an estimated 500 construction jobs plus a further 1000 operational positions at the project. The proponent is very keen for locals in the Moranbah, Dysart and surrounding area to submit their CV and cover letter online.

“As we develop the Olive Downs Coking Coal Project we will be seeking talented, skilled and enthusiastic people to join our team,” the company said on its website. “Pembroke is committed to supporting and sourcing employees from local regions, as well as recruiting workers from other regions to live in local towns.”

The proponent is also committed to offer tendering opportunities to local and regional contractors, suppliers, service providers and other businesses. It has already secured access to power, water, rail and port infrastructure.

The project involves building an open-cut metallurgical coal mine, coal handling and preparation plant, 18km rail spur, rail loop, raw water pipeline to the Eungella Pipeline network, private access roads, electricity transmission line, wastewater and sewage treatment plants.

The operation will be capable of producing up to 15 million tonnes per annum of product that will be exported to Japan, Korea, Mainland China and other countries throughout its 79-year lifespan.

“We look forward to working with Pembroke and surrounding communities to achieve long-term social, environmental and economic outcomes,” Thiess executive general manager Australia Shaun Newberry said in a public statement.

Both federal and state levels of government have already approved the project and relevant mining leases.
