Connecting and engaging with our community
Our objective is to become a respected operator of steelmaking coal mines, exporting to global markets. We cannot achieve this goal without connecting with and respecting our stakeholders and local communities to develop mutually beneficial relationships. We need to understand their concerns and values and take into consideration the impacts of our operations on all of our stakeholders and local communities.
As we work to re-start mining operations at the Tent Mountain mine, the team at Montem will be out in the community talking about the projects and seeking feedback.
Our Community Engagement Centre, located on 17th Street in Coleman, is where our Community Liaison Team is based. The Community Engagement Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. During these hours our Community Liaison Team is available to answer questions as well as provide factsheets, newsletters and information about our projects and our company.
As well as engaging with our community, we are committed to being a good corporate citizen. Our aim is to foster sustainable growth in the areas in which we operate, providing job and business opportunities.
Our Tent Mountain mine plan indicates re-starting operations will create approximately 200+ temporary jobs during the construction phase, with an additional ~175 full-time jobs created, across a range of skill sets, during the 15 year mine life. We’re committed to employing local people where possible.
We’re also committed to working collaboratively and constructively with Indigenous Peoples that may be affected by Montem’s projects.
