Social Performance

Download Factsheet Download Factsheet

Bravus has been working with stakeholders right across Queensland for its mine and rail project since 2010.

Engaging with local communities and local councils, landholders, Traditional Owners and other interest groups has been central to shaping the way we work to meet public expectations and deliver real social and economic benefits.

Our Partners

  • Local governments, regional development organisations, chambers of commerce and local councils
  • Landowners and near neighbours around the Carmichael Mine and the Carmichael Rail Network
  • The Traditional Owners of the land on which the projects are located: the Juru, Jangga, Birriah and
    Clermont & Belyando Peoples and other Indigenous communities and businesses

We Continue to Listen

Stakeholder feedback remains critical to our ongoing performance and we have processes in place to collect and action suggestions, concerns and complaints. A copy of our stakeholder feedback policy is available on our website, and there are a number of channels you can use to contact us.

Working with our neighbours

We are here for the long term. The Carmichael Mine and Rail Project created 2,600+ jobs during construction and spent over $1 billion dollars with regional Queensland businesses and contractors.
We understand our neighbours are interested in what we do and how we manage the potential for our operations to impact their properties.

We have land access agreements and prior consent protocols in place with each landholder that connects with the mine and rail network. We also have processes in place to make sure our  employees and contractors observe our neighbours’ rights and privacy and treat their property with respect. 

Working with Traditional Owners

We create sustainable employment and economic opportunities for Indigenous communities through our projects, which have individual Indigenous Land Use Agreements and Cultural Heritage Management Plans. 

Our continued engagement with Traditional Owner groups also informs how we approach land management and offer local employment training and business development.

"With this project we can get more Indigenous youth back to country, to look after the country of their ancestors.”
Woongal Environmental Services CEO Bill Haylock

Working with Communities

We are delivering on our commitments to regional Queenslanders through priority job and business opportunities, and an extensive program of community investment.

Bravus Mining & Resources headquarters is in Townsville and we have established a business centre in Rockhampton to connect contractors and subcontractors.

Rockhampton and Townsville are our primary hubs for employment and FIFO locations to the Carmichael Mine, however we encourage and consider applicants from all regional Queensland communities.

  • Hundreds of full time operational jobs have been created by our mining services partner MacKellar Group at our Carmichael Mine. Many of these are permanent, and are FIFO from our employment hubs of Townsville and Rockhampton.
  • In partnership with MacKellar Group, we have created 60 new-to-industry positions to give regional Queenslanders an opportunity to move into the mining industry with paid, structured traineeships that will flow into full-time, ongoing jobs.
  • Our platinum partnership with the North Queensland Cowboys includes the delivery of the club’s longest running community program, Adopt-A-School, giving participating schools the opportunity to utilise their ‘adopted’ Cowboy as a role model for their students.
