Mount Carlton Mine | Townsville

Client: Larpro / Evolution Mining


Shadforth were engaged by the client to construct a 42.3m tailings tunnel through the Mt Carlton mine site, located approximately 150km south of Townsville. The tunnel required a conveyor system through the tunnel to transport material into a crushing plant to extract the gold. The scope of works also included backfilling around the tunnel and construction of a floating concrete slab above.

The initial part of the works (erecting the tunnel) was to be completed within two weeks and was achieved, despite five wet days.

Specialised trades included sheet metal workers, concrete structure related trades and civil personnel.
