Regional Project Opportunities

Sconi Project

Project Overview

The flagship Sconi Cobalt-Nickel-Scandium Project, based near Greenvale invests in one of the very few large ore bodies of its type within Australia, and is considered the most advanced towards production.

The economic modelling completed for the Sconi Project Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS released November 2018) demonstrated that the project supports a two million tonne per annum process plant that would deliver long-term benefits to both the regional Queensland community and Australian Mines shareholders.

Australian-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI) Project

Project Overview 

CPB Contractors is the Managing Contractor for the planning phase of the Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI) facilities project in North Queensland for the Australian Government’s Department of Defence.

The ASMTI project in North Queensland will see the development of an estimated 310,000 hectare training area near Greenvale, 220km north-west of Townsville for use by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

The Department of Defence is also expanding the Shoalwater Bay Training Area in Central Queensland under the ASMTI.

Design work for the Greenvale site will commence in early 2021 and construction will commence in mid-2022. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2027.

When the initiative reaches maturity, up to 14,000 Singapore Armed Forces will conduct unilateral training in Central and North Queensland for up to 18 weeks a year for 25 years, providing enduring benefits to the region.
