Carmichael Mine Information

The Adani Carmichael mine project is going to be huge for Queensland. It will export more than 60 million tonnes of high quality thermal coal at the peak production phase. Mining operations require a big investment in infrastructure development; including a 400km rail line to Abbot Point, near Bowen, power station, air strip, new roads as well as camp accommodation.

The mine itself is expected to create around 5,000 mining construction jobs and around 2-3,000 mine jobs when in full production.

When fully developed, the Carmichael Coal Mine will be the largest coal mine in Queensland, if not Australia. The development of the mine and rail network will boost employment in the areas surrounding the mine and fuel new life into local communities.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)

Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.

RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
