BUMA provides a total mine service to Stanwell Corporation’s Meandu Mine to deliver typically 6 million tonnes of product coal per year to the adjacent Tarong and Tarong North power stations. We hold statutory responsibility for the mine site, ensuring compliance with the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act and Regulations.

Responsible for the management and operation of the mine, our services include mine planning, drilling, blasting, overburden removal, coal mining, coal handling and processing plant, rehabilitation, civil works and maintenance of mobile and fixed plant.

Our fleet is predominately client owned, including a Bucyrus BE1370W dragline, Komatsu 830E and Hitachi EH5000 haul trucks and Hitachi EX8000, EX5500 and EX3600 excavators.

Meandu Mine currently has four working pits, with sufficient coal to fuel the power stations until at least 2037. Coal at Meandu is mined from three gently dipping seams, varying in thickness from two- to twenty metres. The two principal seams occur at an average depth of 30 and 60 metres respectively.

Located approximately 25 kilometres south-east of Kingaroy, we employ the majority of our workforce from the local South Burnett region and offer apprenticeships to school leavers and traineeships each year focusing on diversity and Indigenous participation.
