BUMA Australia was established in 2021 to acquire the Open Cut Mining business of Downer. This acquisition included the transition of all people, mining services contracts, assets, systems and intellectual property from a business which has successfully provided mining and civil services in diverse locations and across many commodities for over 75 years. Currently BUMA Australia successfully manages operations across five sites and we have plans to continue to expand and grow.

Everything we do is underpinned by our vision - to be a leading mining service provider contributing to future energy solutions and is supported by our core values of safety, integrity, innovation, collaboration and people.


BUMA Australia provides a total mine service to Stanwell Corporation's Meandu Mine to deliver coal to the adjacent Tarong power station.

BUMA Australia is responsible for both managing and operating the mine. Services provided include planning, drilling, overburden removal, coal mining, coal processing, rehabilitation, and maintenance of mobile and fixed plant. The project uses a combination of dragline and truck-and shovel operations.

Meandu Mine currently has five working pits, with sufficient coal to fuel the stations until at least 2037.

The Meandu project employs approximately 400 people, including staff, maintenance and mining operations personnel.

The mine is located approximately 25 km south-east of Kingaroy in the South Burnett. The mine can be accessed via Nobby Smith Way, Nanango.
