One of the world’s largest mining services providers is continuing its recruitment drive for a coal operation in Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
Thiess recently won a contract extension for BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance’s Caval Ridge Coal Mine in Moranbah, 188km southwest of Mackay.
The contractor will continue to operate and maintain three 600 tonne excavator fleets to move additional overburden for another 12 months until December 2021. QMEB can reveal the deal is worth $110 million.
The announcement prompted the successful tenderer to keep filling several permanent positions at the mine, including:
- multi-skilled and excavator operators (multiple)
- truck operators (multiple positions)
- diesel fitters (multiple)
- mining engineer
- safety advisor.
Successful candidates will be offered a rotating roster of either eight days on and six days off or seven days on and seven days off, working an average shift of 12.5 hours each day or night.
Full camp facilities will be provided with potential for fly-in fly-out via Brisbane Airport and bus-in bus-out from both Mackay and Townsville.
