New Acland coal mind expands

16 Jan 2015
The expansion for the New Acland coal mine will provide opportunities for up to several hundred new jobs across construction and operation.

The $896 million investment will expand the existing open-cut coal mine by up to 7.5 million tonnes of thermal coal per annum.

To complete the project, Queensland deputy premier Jeff Seeney said the project will require 250 workers during the peak of the construction phase, and provide business opportunities for nearby towns such as Oakey, Dalby and Pittsworth.
