Nathan Sharpe Visits The Fitzroy Carborough Downs Mine

Visit to The Fitzroy Carborough Downs Mine

Nathan Sharpe recently had the opportunity to visit The Fitzroy Carborough Downs underground coal mine in central Queensland.

The trip was part of SES Labour Solution’s continued partnership with Fitzroy Australia Resources. Nathan remarked that seeing the Fitzroy approach in a live operating environment was an important piece of the puzzle as development of the new Fitzroy Ironbark No.1 mine progresses.

“Underground mining is a very close knit community, you have to look after your mate next to you, its very similar to the high performance culture of a sporting team” – Nathan Sharpe.

The values and teamwork present at Carborough Downs will form the building blocks of the culture that is created at Iron Bark No.1. “We want to replicate and take that culture to the next level”- Nathan Sharpe.

The trip wasn’t all business though, Nathan got his hands a little dirty and travelled down underground to see the longwall coal mining machinery in action.

“For anyone that hasn’t had the opportunity to go underground and see a longwall machine cut coal, it’s an incredibly impressive sight!” – Nathan Sharpe.
