A multinational resources company began a major recruitment drive after selecting a mining equipment supplier for its coal operation in Central Queensland’s Isaac region.
BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) recently awarded Jord International a maintenance contract for the Caval Ridge Coal Mine in Moranbah, 188km southwest of Mackay.
The successful bidder is responsible for installing new equipment at the existing Wash Plant, allowing maintenance to be performed on filter presses designed to remove moisture from coal rejects. This means maintenance workers will theoretically no longer be exposed to rotating machinery during filter press repairs.
The technology is expected to be piloted sometime in July for a total of six months. If the trial run is successful, filter presses will be permanently implemented across the mine and potentially other BMA sites too.
The proponent is now trying to fill the following permanent positions at the Blackwater, Caval Ridge, Peak Downs and Saraji coal mines:
- boilermakers (multiple positions)
- auto electricians (multiple)
- production operators (multiple)
- high voltage electricians (multiple).
