Hundreds of mining jobs up for grabs in Bowen Basin

A multinational mining company is hiring hundreds of new staff for its mines in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) will employ about 200 people at its Peak Downs and Saraji mines in Central Queensland.

QMEB has learnt Townsville, which has already been selected as India-backed Adani’s regional headquarters, will benefit the most from BMA’s recruitment drive.

“While jobs have been advertised locally for some time, Townsville is set to benefit due to lack of skilled workers in the area,” Queensland Resources Council chief executive Ian Macfarlane says.

“It was great news for people in the north and the broader Queensland coal sector, which had been struggling through a downturn over the past few years. This is another sign of green shoots for the Bowen Basin, an area which delivered much of the $1.6 billion boost to royalties for the state government.”

HSE Mining previously won the pre-stripping contract at the Peak Downs Mine. The prestripping operation involves the annual excavation of a minimum of 33M bcms of overburden ahead of the client’s coal mining operations. BMA supplied hydraulic excavators and a fleet of ultra class electric drive rear dump trucks are utilised in this project.

HSE is also recruiting staff on its website for Peak Downs and other mines. Apply here: hsemining.com.au/section/Careers/Current_vacancies
