"Management at the mine have been ramping up production since buying the site last year," Ms Adams said.

While she didn't disclose the number of positions that have been recruited or available, she said this was because the mine was "pretty much in an ongoing recruitment process".

The benefits of this site include a roster suited to worker's lifestyles and the on-going nature of the position.

While accommodation is not supplied, there is an opportunity to live in a small country town about 15 minutes away.

Ms Adams said the industry had picked up with plenty of jobs up for grabs not just at this mine, but other sites across Central Queensland.

She encouraged interested people to get in touch with a labour hire organisation.

"Labour hire organisations can discuss multiple positions with one person," Ms Adams said.

Last week, Queensland Resources Council boss Ian McFarlane presented a speech about the "green shoots" emerging in the resources sector at the Bowen Basin Mining Club.
