Bravus extends support to RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter

Bravus Mining & Resources were in Mackay this week celebrating its continued support for RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter, with more than $100,000 donated to the service since construction on the Carmichael mine and rail Project commenced.

Bravus Mining and Resources Head and Communications and Community Kate Campbell said the company was proud to support the service, which provides a lifeline to people in northern and central Queensland.

“Regional and rural communities throughout central Queensland rely on RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter to respond to emergencies when distances or locations are challenging and our Project is no exception to this,” Ms Campbell said.

“RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter has provided life saving services to some of our people and contractors when they have been in need throughout construction of our Project and we’re extremely grateful for their support.

“The RACQ CQ Rescue team can get a patient from the Clermont area to the hospital in Mackay in a little over an hour compared to nearly four hours by road.

“We’re proud to contribute to the service that provides so much for regional Queensland,” she said.

RACQ CQ Rescue is community funded, and services an area four times the size of Tasmania with round-the-clock operations 365 days a year.

RACQ CQ Rescue CEO Ian Rowan said the community was indebted to Bravus who had all committed to donating $50,000 to the not-for-profit service, which was absolutely vital to the sick and injured within Central and Northern Queensland.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have such vital support from a new, high-profile partner which ensures we can have a world-class aeromedical helicopter service on our doorstep and available anywhere, anytime throughout Central Queensland,” Mr Rowan said.


“RACO CQ Rescue is a vital part of emergency support for all workers in this region and it’s reassuring to know organisations like Bravus appreciate the value of supporting our helicopter and that with their commitment we can continue to provide our vital, lifesaving service to anyone in a time of crisis,” he said.

Bravus Mining and Resources is also pleased to once again sponsor the RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter Gala Dinner on 20 August this year and Bravus has also donated a signed 2021 Cowboys jersey to be auctioned on the night.

Since construction has commenced on the Carmichael Project, Bravus has donated and partnered with near 100 community organisations across north and central Queensland, contributing more than $1.5 million dollars to date.
