Byerwen Coal Mine Gets Federal Approval

In Latest News, Training & Recruitment

Glenden is set to get a new coal mine with the federal government granting approval for QCoal’s Byerwen Coal Project this week.

The $1.76 billion joint venture by QCoal and Japanese company JFE Steel is expected to create about 350 jobs during construction and employ more than 500 people once the open-cut mine is fully operational.

Federal approval, subject to 22 strict environmental conditions, comes after the Queensland coordinator general also granted conditional approval to the project in July of this year.

The mine must now be granted a State Government mining lease before construction can begin.
