Mining and Resources

Work Adani, Live Rockhampton

The Queensland resources sector is now in a recovery phase and this is anticipated to impact positively on Rockhampton, both from mining services and dormitory perspectives. 

There is considerable new activity emerging in the Bowen, Surat and Galilee coal basins including new mining leases being granted and applications in the pipeline.  There are some 30 advanced coal projects in Queensland, including 20 greenfield or new projects and 10 brownfield expansions.  Of these, 25 are in the Bowen Basin.  

Adani has also committed to commencing its Carmichael Mine and rail project and recommitted to using Rockhampton as a FIFO hub. Find out more about the Work Adani, Live Rockhampton project here.
