CSI Mining Services to deliver haulage services for Tier One miner in Queensland

CSI Mining Services (CSI) says it is set to expand its operations into Queensland, Australia, following a contract award to deliver haulage services for a Tier One mining company.

The new load and haul operations contract will see CSI running eight Kenworth C509 quad road trains – the biggest single engine road trains in the world featuring a 330-t-payload and 425-t gross combination mass.

MinRes Mining Services Chief Executive, Mike Grey, said expanding into Queensland was an exciting milestone for the company as it continues a significant period of growth that will see it double in the next two years.

“We are excited to expand our operations into the east coast of Australia, opening up new business opportunities and access to new labour markets,” he said.

CSI will employ more than 50 site-based personnel to support the contract, prioritising local employment and presenting opportunities to work at MinRes sites across the country.

Businesses in far north Queensland will also benefit, with CSI set to partner with local companies to support the operation where feasible.
