MyneSight’s Global Projects: A Snapshot
Within the past five years, MyneSight has provided training solutions to the coal mine industry within Australia, and has also been involved internationally with companies in the gold and copper mining sectors.
The Myne Start Underground Training Complex simulates underground coal mining conditions like no other facility. The facility is used for training purposes designed to accelerate and develop skills and operational readiness of cleanskin and existing workers of the underground coal mining industry.
Between 2012 and 2016, MyneSight has operated the Myne Start Facility in two Australian cities: Mackay and Brisbane, providing trainees with practical hands-on training experience.
MyneSight is proud to be a part of building Asia’s first underground mine training facility in Clark, Pampanga (two hours north of Manila). Designed in conjunction with Site Skills Training for the Oceana Gold Work Readiness Program, this training complex has been built in 2015 using the Myne Start Facility prototype.
Oceana Gold is a global gold mining company which operates in the Philippines, New Zealand and United States.
In 2014, MyneSight has conducted a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) to identify any gaps in the skills and training needs for employees of a copper processing plant on north central coast of Wetar (an island in the Maluku province of Indonesia).
Drawing on years of experience in the training and resource industry, MyneSight has developed a comprehensive TNA report spanning more than 250 skill levels to incorporate the various roles within the entire coal processing plant operation.

India is one of the biggest coal producing countries, having one of the largest coal mining reserves in the world. With the aim to further improve the productivity and safety of domestic coal mines, India is poised to almost double its production and meet the growing requirements of the nation. This expansion presents an opportunity for the Australian mining industry, specifically businesses and organisations that specialise in mining equipment, technology and services.
The Queensland Government recognises and values the significant contribution the Indian community brings to Queensland and the long-standing and strong relationship the Queensland and wider Australian community shares with the Indian communities and businesses.”
Ms Palaszczuk has always recognised the role of the diverse Indian communities in promoting multiculturalism, harmony and peace across Queensland. She demonstrated this in 2010 when she presented the Indian community her Minister’s Multicultural Community Award at the 2010 Queensland Multicultural Award ceremony.
As Premier she is leading the way to dialogue between Queensland and the Indian community in many fields, trade, education and culture. Under her, the relations can only grow from strength to strength.
