WITH the state of the construction industry in Queensland limping along, FIFO workers may have a new opportunity to secure work.

Thousands of mining and construction jobs could be on the way up north after the Northern Territory government signed off on two major mining projects.

The Flapping Mouth, which claims to be the "rowdy mouthpiece" of plant hire search group, reports that the TIVAN Metals Refinery and Ammaroo Phosphate Project could create 2,800 jobs in the Territory.

According to the site, the Northern Territory government has signed project facilitation agreements for the two projects worth $850 million and $750 million, respectively.

"Construction of the (TIVAN Metals Refinery) mine and its associated refinery is anticipated to create 1700 construction jobs and 600 mining jobs," the Flapping Mouth reported.

However the project will still be subject to an Environmental Impact Study, which the company hoped to complete this year.

The Ammaroo Phosphate Project was expected to create 500 jobs during construction and operation, with construction expected to begin in 2018.
