Working with our local community
Mining operations have played an integral part in the development of Baralaba, starting with the underground operations at the turn of the last century.
More recently, Baralaba’s community engagement has been significantly improved. Baralaba Coal is working diligently to restore and foster relationships with the local community.
This has led to the establishment of the Baralaba Community Engagement Management Plan.
The Community Engagement Management Plan (CEMP) outlines how Baralaba intends to engage and support the local community. Baralaba provides significant employment and local business opportunities to the
Central Queensland region. The primary objective of the CEMP is to provide a framework that develops collaborative working relationships with the local community stakeholders.
This objective will be met through the establishment of a Community Consultative Committee and a Community Sponsorship Program.
