Welcome to our very first @ The Coalface Queensland edition. After ten years of telling the story of the coal mining community in NSW, we have finally expanded and headed north to beautiful Queensland.
Following quite a few years of prodding by Queensland suppliers and industry people, not to mention being tempted by the beautiful lifestyle, we have bitten the bullet to bring you the first edition of your new monthly publication.
You’ll find a bit of everything inside, people, sport, community, industry, commentary and much more. 64 pages is a lot to read, but as we have been finding out, Queenslanders have a lot to say.
We are here to tell your story, to showcase the best of what you do and how you do it and we take a lot of pride and pleasure in sharing the inspiring, heartwarming and real stories.
Our Queensland HQ is based in Mackay, but we will spend most of our time out there in the very special and unique coalmining communities that make this state and industry great. We’ll do our best to cover all of the regions who do so much for this state and country.
Despite some of the talk circulating about our industry, we believe there is a long and prosperous future ahead. Of course, there will be challenges ahead in the coming years, but we guarantee there will also be plenty of opportunities and good times. And in the usual coalmining fighting spirit, we will make our way through them together.
We’re always up for a chat and we would love to hear from you if you’ve got a story to tell. This is your magazine, so tell us what you want.
