Bravus has struck coal
Posted on June 29th, 2021
Bravus has struck coal for the first time at the Carmichael mine in Queensland’s Galilee Basin, with production operations at the site one step closer to commencing.
Announcing the striking of coal, Bravus Mining and Resources CEO David Boshoff, said, “Nearly two years ago today we received our final approvals to develop the Carmichael Mine and Rail Project. We have faced many hurdles along the way, but thanks to the hard work and perseverance of our team, we have now reached the coal seams.”
“Our people have put their hearts and souls into this Project – it is wonderful that we have now struck coal,” Boshoff said.
Bravus has chosen Rockhampton as one of the Queensland cities to host the fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) hubs for the Carmichael coal operation in the Galilee Basin. There are over 2,600 people employed on the project, and over $1.5 billion in contracts have been awarded for the construction of the Carmichael Mine and Rail Projects.
Mr Boshoff said Bravus was on track to export first coal as planned, in 2021.
