Hail Creek Coal Mine
"Easily installed without any major construction works, whilst keeping footprint to a minimum"
The Rio Tinto Hail Creek Coal Mine is located within the Bowen Basin at Hail Creek in Central Queensland, Australia. The mine has coal reserves amounting to 970 million tonnes of coking coal, one of the largest coal reserves the world. Hail Creek Mine is an open cut mine, using a dragline, truck and shovel method.
Our client needed a solution for an easily installed coagulant tank without any major construction works, whilst keeping footprint to a minimum. The client wished to be able to reconfigure the system differently at a later date if required, and another prerequisite was weatherproofing, as an open top bund would fill with water. The remote mine site required UV-resistant material to cope with the harsh Australian climate.
