The MAC Services group is building accommodation for miners at Narrabri to service the growth of coal in the area.

It announced that it has signed an agreement with Narrabri Coal (which is owned by Whitehaven Coal) to supply 150 rooms for four years.

The move is part of the mining accommodation firm’s plan for expansion into New South Wales.

“The village site is 1.2 kilometres from the centre of town and will be developed in stages to meet the local accommodation demands as more mines are developed in the area," MAC chief executive Mark Maloney said.

The Narrabri coal is a long wall coal mine with an approved production level of eight million tonnes of thermal and PCI coal per annum for the export market.

It is located approximately 28 kilometres south of Narrabri, in New South Wales.

Currently MAC Services has operations throughout the Queensland coal fields and in West Australia’s eastern goldfields.
