Mining is our source of everything we do, if it can't be grown, it must be mined.

Thiess has secured a mining services contract for the Lake Vermont Coal Mine which is located 18km north east of Dysart in Central Queensland.

Total mining operations include: planning, drill and blast, overburden removal, coal mining, coal processing, and maintenance of all fixed and mobile plant.

Lake Vermont is a Greenfield coal mine site in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. Thiess entered into two contracts with Lake Vermont Resources Pty Ltd for the construction and operation of the Lake Vermont Coal Project.

The volume of material expected to be mined during this period includes approximately 160 million cubic metres of overburden and parting materials, and 21 million tonnes of run of mine (ROM) coal to produce 16 million tonnes of saleable coal.  Work is underway with the client to further increase the annual output of the mine to reflect recent increases in shipping demand.

RML Group Mining Services Pty Ltd supplies ongoing maintenance and equipment (fully mine service vehicles) to HSE Emerald – Qld.
