Multi Skilled Dozer/Haul Truck Operators – DIDO
Gladstone | Contract | Full-Time |
Dozer/Dump Truck Operators Callide Coal Mine
Callide Coal Mine in Central Queensland is an open-cut operation located 120km southwest of Gladstone and 20km northeast of the thriving regional township of Biloela.
The mine has operated since 1944 producing low sulphur, sub-bituminous thermal coal primarily for domestic power generation and alumina refining.
Under the ownership of Batchfire Resources (October 2016) the mine is continuing to meet the quality and performance benchmarks sought by its domestic customers while looking to expand export opportunities.
The Callide mining tenure extends across 180 square kilometres and contains an estimated coal resource of up to 1.7 billion tonnes.
Conventional open cut mining methods are employed using two draglines, haul trucks and excavator fleets. Saleable coal production averages 10 million tonnes per year.
Nearby, two lynchpins of the Queensland electricity supply system – CS Energy’s high-efficiency Callide B and C Power Stations – are the mine’s biggest customer.
In 2017, Batchfire Resources applied to the state government to start the Boundary Hill South project at Callide. With resources at the existing Boundary Hill operation expected to run out in early 2018, Boundary Hill South will become the focus for maintaining a proud tradition of reliable coal supply, local employment and business opportunities.
Callide Coal Mine is committed to safe and environmentally responsible operations and supporting the local communities that it has partnered with for more than 70 years.
