Thiess awarded $2.3 billion Jellinbah Group contract
Australia's leading contract coal miner Thiess has been awarded a $2.3 billion contract to extend mining operations at Jellinbah Group's Lake Vermont coal mine in Queensland's resource-rich Bowen Basin. Since 2007, Thiess has been responsible for excavating the deposits in Lake Vermont and is also assuming the transportation of the coal and maintaining the machine park.
The new six year agreement will significantly expand current operations and ramp up production from four million tonnes to eight million tonnes per annum. The new contract continues Thiess' responsibility for mine operations and maintenance.
Lake Vermont Mine is located 20 kilometres north of Dysart and currently has a total workforce of more than 350.
