Resources giant extends contract for Bowen Basin coal mine
$800M new Central Queensland project approved
Employers begin hiring jobseekers who want to work in mining
Mining giant goes on a hiring spree at multiple locations.
Separately, Glencore recently finalised a new joint venture partnership with Mitsubishi Development for its Aurukun Bauxite Project at Cape York, about 35km south of Weipa.
The full project involves developing an operation capable of producing up to 8 million dry tonnes of bauxite annually, throughout an estimated lifespan of more than 20 years.
A number of milestones remain before a final investment decision can be made. This includes finalising an environmental impact statement and securing both state and federal regulatory approvals.
Once the project secures environmental and economic approvals it will require a workforce of up to 250 people for a two-year construction phase. A further 400 jobs will be created when the mine begins production.
