The Peak Downs mine is one of nine metallurgical coal mines in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. Peak Downs is an open-pit coal mine that produces high-quality hard coking coal and is one of Australia’s biggest coal mines by recoverable coal reserves. It’s located 31 kilometres south east of Moranbah in Queensland’s Bowen Basin on the traditional lands of the Barada Barna people.
Operating at Peak Downs since 2011 under a civil mine services, rehabilitation and environmental management contract, Macmahon is proud to share that we have maintained a significant safety record, with over three years free from Lost Time Injuries (LTI).
Works include constructing and maintaining a safe and efficient light vehicle road network across the site including crucial tasks like dragline and drill bench preparation. We manage all aspects of infrastructure construction to support efficient mining operations.
Macmahon provides effective measures to minimise dust across the site, we manage the drainage network and the fire break construction and high-risk bunding to ensure compliance with circuit safety standards.
We’re working towards rehabilitating mining landforms, and providing tailings dam improvement, remediating the area at the Three South Tailings Dam.
Macmahon also provides essential site engineering services and geotechnical works. From designing and constructing infrastructure works to pontoon walkways for safe access to pumps on multiple dams and boat ramps for secure pump installation access.
