Hail Creek Project

The Hail Creek Coal Mine is located within the Bowen Basin at Hail Creek in Central Queensland, Australia. The mine has a reserve of approximately 970 million tonnes of coking coal, one of the largest coal reserves in the world. The mine has an annual production capacity of 5.5 mtpa.

CIVIL CONTRACT

The mine has a reserve of approximately 970 million tonnes of coking coal, one of the largest coal reserves in the world.

BGC initially undertook civil works on the haul road connecting to the Eastern end of the ROM and dayworks including fuel farm, raising the banks of the co disposal dam, drainage work on sediment dams and other minor earthworks.

MINING CONTRACT AWARD

In 2004, Rio Tinto Coal awarded BGC a second contract at Hail Creek to progress the mining. BGC undertook to supplement the overburden removal (5.9 million bcm) of the coal mine. Works included drilling and blasting operations, mining, hauling and dumping of overburden. The contract also included the construction of workshop and office complexes.

The Hail Creek project was successfully completed with zero lost time injuries and zero lost time to industrial disputes. It serves as an example of BGC Contracting’s commitment to creating a safe workplace and ensuring efficient and timely project delivery for our clients.

BGC Contracting has also completed work for Rio Tinto Coal at their Clermont Coal Mine and Kestrel Coal Mine.
