Tax Office applies to wind up contractor
Thursday 14 April 2016  

THE  Australian Tax Office has applied to wind up Gold Coast mining contractor Civil Australia Holdings - a company that twenty-one miner's claim owes them thousands of dollars for work already done at the Callide Mine.

Three weeks ago Civil Australia Group staff walked off the Callide Mine site after claiming their employer had not paid them for more than three weeks work.

One of the group - Selwyn Lampard told local media he was owed about $9000 in wages and six months worth of superannuation.

"The (boss) wouldn't answer his phone, emails or texts," he said at the time.

"Then at lunch on Monday (March 21), we got a call from where we were staying, telling us we had to pack up our stuff and leave because our bill wasn't settled.

"That's when we decided to stop working."

A spokeswoman for Anglo American said Civil Australia was a "minor contractor" at Callide.

"Civil Australia, a minor contractor, were contracted to Callide mine to undertake repair and rehab works following Cyclone Marcia and have worked on culverts and drains on site since October 2015. They are not part of production and therefore have had no impact on mining operations or production," she said.

Anglo recently agreed to sell Callide to Batchfire Resources in January, and that transaction is yet to reach settlement.

 

So far the directors of Civil Australia have not made any comment.
