The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) has welcomed a donation by ConocoPhillips Australia of USD 50,000 to communities affected by the bushfires in Central Queensland. QRC Chief Executive Mr Ian Macfarlane said the donation, to not-for-profit GIVIT, would help alleviate the pain people are going through after the devastating fires. He said that “I would like to sincerely thank ConocoPhillips Australia for this considerate donation which will help people who have lost homes and farming equipment. It’s important for the resources sector to help out regional communities with many of our own projects operating nearby. ConocoPhillips Australia operates the Australia Pacific LNG facility on Curtis Island, near Gladstone.”

However, GIVIT will be able to use the funds immediately with 100 percent of donations used to support Queenslanders in fire-affected areas and has a policy of buying locally where possible.

Anglo American which has coal mines near Middlemount, Moranbah and Moura donated USD 100,000 to GIVIT last week.
