he Queensland Resource Council (QRC) on Thursday said that the state government’s plans to introduce new laws governing fly-in, fly-out (Fifo) operations, was “deeply concerning” and could pose a serious threat to investor confidence.

The new legislation would not allow a 100% Fifo operation for new mines, if nearby regional towns had a capable workforce, and would compel existing 100% Fifo operations to consider locals for employment.
