Australia's largest private rail freight business has signed its fifth coal haulage customer in Queensland.
The Isaac Plains mine, owned by Aquilla Resources and Vale, has signed a 10-year contract with Pacific National.
Pacific National will haul 1.1 million tonnes of coal from the mine along the Goonyella rail system to the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal in the state's north.
General manager of Queensland coal operations, Geoff Featherstone, says the contract with mine owners Aquilla and Vale will begin from July 1.
"No, that's not all of their coal but it's a start-up mine and it's a fairly significant commitment to Pacific National and it's a company that is in growth and it's a good contract for us to pick up," he said.
Mr Featherstone says the new contract shows the mining industry remains strong.
"We've got contracts now with Oakey Creek, or Xstrata, we've got contracts with Rio Tinto, Anglo and Macarthur, so we've got fairly significant contracts right across the board," he said.
