Event description

Description


Come along and hear from project leaders on future work and business opportunities in North Queensland!

Presentations include;


JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY - TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION COMPLEX

The $90m, three level, 10,000m2 Townsville Innovation Complex will be the centrepiece of an innovation hub in which undergraduate engineering students, industry partners, post-graduate researchers and start-up businesses will converge and collaborate. It’s estimated the project will create about 270 construction and other jobs.


THE VILLE RESORT CASINO - REDEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE MORRIS GROUP DEVELOPMENTS

The Ville Resort Casino Chief Executive Officer, Michael Jones, will provide an update on the recently completed $43M redevelopment of the property, plus what might be in store in the future for the Morris Group owned integrated resort. In early 2017, Chris Morris acquired the land to the west of the Resort Casino and has been investigating development options for the site. Michael will provide an insight into the groups thinking behind the purchase and what the breakwater precinct could become in the future.

AUSTRALIAN MINES LIMITED - SCONI PROJECT

Benjamin Bell, Managing Director of Australian Mines will present on current progress at Sconi, the company’s cobalt-nickel-scandium project located near Greenvale. Construction of this $1 billion project is planned to begin in 2019 and will include an open pit mining operation and processing plant. The project, which will operate for at least the next 20 years, will employ more than 250 people of a full-time basis, with the company expecting over 80% of this workforce being employed from the local Townsville and Greenvale communities. Development of Sconi is part of Australian Mines’ strategy to build world class battery metal projects in Australia to supply ultra-pure cobalt sulphate and nickel sulphate to global electric vehicle auto makers.
