Tablelands iron ore group recruiting for ramp-up
The company aims to kick off operations with a pilot run involving one of its sites, with potential to employ about 30 people.
Recruitment would occur in various stages and include a range of personnel including professionals, supervisor staff, mobile and fixed plant operators and maintenance tradespersons, it said this week.
The ultimate goal would see three mines in operation, along with a central processing plant and transport solution.
Early estimates put the total workforce around 100-125 people, although the company cautions that this is still to be finalised.
Tablelands Mining Group’s tenements include the Mount Ruby mine near Ravenshoe, the Mount Lucy mine near Almaden, and the Mount Paddy mine west of Mount Garnet.
It plans to export high-grade iron ore and magnetite from its operations via the port of Mourilyan
Tablelands Mining Group’s major shareholder Fomento Group is a global player in iron ore with a history in exploration, production, processing, marketing, and shipping.
“We have recruited a strong technical and operational team over the last 18 months and we are working hard to unlock the value of our sites for the benefit of all our stakeholders,” Tablelands Mining Group chief executive officer Anuj Timblo said.
“Our goal in the short term is to open up a few of the mines as pilot runs whilst working on a processing plant as part of our longer-term strategy.
“Fomento is all about supporting the communities we operate in therefore our aim will be to employ locally, supporting this region as best we can.”
