CuString Copperstring project

Feedback is being sought on a mine infrastructure development worth $1 billion in North Queensland.

Queensland Independent Coordinator-General Barry Broe has released the draft terms of reference for CuString’s CopperString Powerline environmental impact statement (EIS) and is accepting public comment until August 2.

The project involves building an 1100km, 275 kilovolt overhead high-voltage electricity transmission line in at least two stages between the North West Minerals Provence, Mount Isa area and National Electricity Market grid south of Townsville.

The first phase aims to build a 20km overhead powerline no later than the end of the year 2020 between Woodstock, 50km south of Townsville, and the Chumvale Substation, 12km west of Cloncurry. The next stage involves extending the line between the Chumvale Substation, Mount Isa, Phosphate Hill Power Station and Cannington Mine from as early as 2024.

The construction phase is promised to create up to 400 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs and take 3.5 years to complete, after which the transmission line will employ 30 FTE workers during operation.
