A mining services company has won a tender at a coal operation in Central Queensland’s Isaac region.

EPSA Pacific recently secured the open-cut mining services agreement (MSA) for Stanmore Resources’ Isaac Downs Mine, 169km southwest of Mackay.

The deal involves ESPA spending the next five years as the site’s new coal mining operator (CMO). The contractor will take over shortly after the proponent terminates its existing MSA with outgoing CMO Golding Contractors. QMEB can reveal the latest deal is worth $564 million.

Stanmore will eventually transition to an owner-operator model for the Coal Handling and Preparation Plant.

“A termination notice in respect of that MSA has been given to Golding and a carefully managed transition plan will be implemented to ensure business continuity and the minimisation of any disruption including, but not limited to, a workforce consultation process focussed on the potential retention of experienced operators,” Stanmore said in a public statement.

The following permanent full-time positions have been advertised:

  • dragline maintenance superintendent
  • project maintenance superintendent
  • dozer/dragline superintendent
  • senior supervisor mining OCE
  • drill and blast superintendent
  • engineer (multiple positions)
