Bechtel is the engineering, construction, and project manager for BMA’s new Caval Ridge Mine. The mine is located in the northern section of the Bowen Basin, southeast of Moranbah. The mine has been identified as a quality hard coking coal resource to support BMA’s growth options.
The project includes a new coal mine and a coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP). The new Caval Ridge Mine will have the capacity to produce 5.5 million tonnes per annum and the CHPP will also process an additional 2.5 million tonnes per annum of product coal from the expansion of the neighbouring Peak Downs Mine, which will be transported via conveyor.
