Wesfarmers Curragh Mine
Wesfarmers are a significant Australian open-cut miner and a leading metallurgical coal producer and supplier of thermal coal for domestic power generation. The Curragh Mine
covers an area of approximately 12,600 hectares in the coalrich Bowen Basin of Central Queensland – 14 kilometres north-west of Blackwater and approximately 200 kilometres
west of Rockhampton.
Internal External Developments Pty Ltd (IE Developments) were engaged by Wesfarmers
to apply a weather, water and rust proof membrane totaling 680sqm in surface area over
three sections of roof. Both the Colorbond® and Klip-Lok® roofs leaked in many places.
They consist of many construction joints that required waterproofing to ensure that the
facility below remains dry.
