BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) recently declared Redpath Mining Contractors and Engineers as the preferred contractor for the Broadmeadow Coal Mine in Moranbah, 203km southwest of Mackay.

The following job vacancies are available:
- yardspeople (multiple positions)
- underground load-haul dump operators (multiple)
- surface operators (multiple).
Successful applicants will be offered a 12-hour roster of seven days on and seven days off that starts in September. There will be a competitive hourly rate with annual leave, sick leave, company provided personal protective equipment, salary sacrifice options, discounted BUPA health insurance, staff recognition, capped reimbursement for prescription safety glasses and employee assistance.
“We look forward to working closely with BMA in delivering this project safely and efficiently,” Redpath managing director Gavin Ramage said in a public statement.
