The State Government has moved to exclude areas around two north Queensland towns from being resumed as part a major resource project.
Residents in Collinsville and Merinda have expressed concern their properties would be resumed to make way for a rail corridor through the Galilee Basin.
Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney says the consultation process has allowed the Government to exclude those areas but it is yet to exclude any other towns.
"We will continue to talk to the landholders that have been already contacted by the coordinator general, that's the whole purpose of the consultation process, and we will take all of that information into account when and if we do declare the State Development Area," he said.
"We've got staff that will have one-on-one meetings, we have a range of other avenues to provide information to people.
"We are very cognisant of the fact that we have to reduce the impact on private property owners as much as is possible and this consultation process is about how we're going to do that."
