Project Specifics for Caval Ridge Southern Cicuit

CRSC is an 11 kilometre overland conveyor system which will transport coal from Peak Downs Mine to the Coal Handling Preparation Plant (CHPP) at the nearby Caval Ridge Mine.

In addition to the new conveyor and associated tie-ins, the project will also mean a new stockpile pad and Run-of-Mine station at Peak Downs and, at Caval Ridge, the existing CHPP and stockyard will be upgraded. BMA will also invest in new mining fleet, including excavators, and trucks

The project created up to 400 new construction jobs during construction and will lock in approximately 200 ongoing operational roles. It will also result in the Caval Ridge preparation plant increasing its throughput to reach its 10 million tonne per year capacity.
