The RFDS in QLD
In 2010, the QCoal Group became a proud Principal Partner of the RFDS (Queensland Section). Christopher Wallin, Managing Director of QCoal Group, has personally supported the RFDS for many years.
The QCoal Group is an independent Queensland-based company that has been active in coal exploration, discovery and development since 1989. At its Northern Hub just south of Collinsville in the upper Bowen Basin, the QCoal Group currently operates the Sonoma, Cows and Drake Mines. QCoal also operates the Byerwen Mine, west of the town of Glenden. It has been through innovation, collaboration and pragmatism that QCoal has been able to continue its organic growth and support the sustainability of operations and communities.

QCoal Group, in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section), have been supporting regional, rural and remote Queenslanders since 2010.
Initially a partnership between the QCoal Group and the RFDS, and later with both the QCoal Group and the QCoal Foundation, the organisations are most proud of the flagship RFDS Dental Service, formerly the QCoal Community Dental Service, which has provided more than 76,000 treatments since it began and produced more than $15 million of economic and social benefits to patients.
This Service, delivered by the RFDS, has visited 24 locations across the length and breadth of the state including Collinsville, Winton, Sapphire, Monto, Dajarra, Camooweal, Cherbourg, Springsure, Jundah, Theodore, Clermont and Richmond.
