Kestrel Mine Extension – Rio Tinto

By September 15, 2010 No Comments

OMTrak have began work on the, Rio Tinto owned, Kestrel Mine Project in Central QLD. The System will allow the Contractor, Thomas and Coffey, to Produce a Tailored Asset Register, along with providing a central point for all Critical Documents to be Approved online as part of the Project Due Diligence.

The $1.1b project will create up to 250 jobs during construction. When completed in 2012 the project infrastructure will support the 20 years of remaining mine life. The extension involves a relocation of mining activities to better access the underground resource and includes the construction of two mine access points and surface infrastructure. The existing coal handling and preparation plant and rail system will be upgraded to take the coal from the new mining area via an overland conveyor.
