Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m
This is a handy website to keep an active eye on possible investments or your current investments. New opportunities pop up so keep a close eye on whats happening.
Of particular interest is the Environmental Impact Statement for the $7.9 billion Alpha project. Minimum life span of 30 years for this project so environmental issues will be a distinct priority for some.............this project is not a done deal just yet...but i hope it will be.....the benefits will be enormous to our state and country.....
I still have issues with coal burning but at present we dont have a cost effective alternative.

Keep in mind this will be an open cut mine, not underground...
Thanks for sharing Herr csc2. Arbeit Macht Frei
Bring it on I say! You are right csc2...it's going to bring some real prosperity to the region and further opportunity to well researched property investors. Unfortunatly the Federal government has blundered it's way around this issue (resourse development) for the past 3 years damaging our soverign security...we can't run this country on solar and wind power and be competitive in the world market. What a joke!
However, it looks like things are starting to come on line...recent green lights in Gladstone.
Even this Fed Govt clinging to it's 1 seat minority and having it's strings pulled by Bob Brown is starting to realise the immense potential resources can offer fed by the appetite of China, India and Asia.
The next few years are going to bring some real opportunities for well placed investors.

a lot of the alpha workers are FIFO they may change in the future.Click to expand...If the unions have anything to do with it they will try and change at some point plus the local business owners.many already are being killed by FIFO mining policies.....However Jerricho is not exactly a thriving town...I'd want to FIFO as well personally if I was anywhere near a mining site out there.....what a depressing place.
Mining companies must think its more economical to FIFO than build a township such as Tieri, Middlemount which are nice little mining towns with at least decent pubs and recreation facilities...
Guess there maybe a showdown of some sort over the coming years.....
I think miners who stay onsite for extended periods and are FIFO workers would struggle to keep families together at home.
Im sure that will be one of the building blocks the unions will use to get whole families to there "remotish" places.....If the mines build the homes people will come Im quite sure...
having worked on several mine sites id sooner go home to the wife each night than live in a donger next door to steve the woeful snorer who blows his cash in the mess at night on booze and wakes everyone up at closing time...............and then the next day wants everyone to back him for a sickie......
I'm all for families onsite in reasonable and comfortable housing..
First test pit commenced today actually.....Cant wait for feedback!!
