The Baralaba North Coal Mine is located approximately 5 km north of the Baralaba Township in the Bowen Basin, Central Queensland. It is an open-cut coal operation utilising truck and excavator method. Approval has been obtained to operate up to 4.1 Mtpa run-of-mine (ROM) coal and transport 3.5 Mtpa on the approved Haul Route through to the Train Load ... MoreOut (TLO) Facility, located approximately 2 km east of Moura.

The high quality metallugical coal (ULV PCI) produced from the Baralaba North Mine is transported by rail to the Gladstone Ports for export to international customers.

The mine is currently in 'care and maintenance' and is scheduled to restart operations in 2018. The project will provide significant employment opportunities for the local community.
Bengalla Coal Mine is a single pit open cut mine, using a dragline, truck and excavator method. The mine's employees work in shifts to keep the mine operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Geologically, the operation is situated in the Sydney Basin, and mines the Wittingham Coal Measures of the Hunter Coalfields.... More

In 2015, Bengalla produced 8.318 Mt of thermal coal. After washing and preparation for sale, the coal is loaded onto trains and transported to the Port Waratah Coal Terminal in Newcastle where it is shipped to international customers.

Bengalla had JORC run of mine (ROM) coal reserves totalling 269 Mt (163 Mt proved and 106 Mt probable) as at 31 December 2014.
TerraCom Ltd (ASX: TER) acquired the Blair Athol Coal Mine for AUD$1 and the Queensland Government received AUD$79.6m from the Blair Athol Coal Joint Venture (BACJV) to meet Blair Athol Coal Mine's rehabilitation (which forms part of TerraCom's financial assurance quantum of AUD$93.1m). The acquisition included the mining lease, related licenses, land, ... Moresite infrastructure, active contracts and all mining plant & equipment, including a dragline, to deliver TerraCom's forecast production schedule and the progressive rehabilitation.

The acquisition of the Blair Athol Coal Mine is a significant milestone for TerraCom, bringing the following benefits:

Progressive rehabilitation of one of Queensland's oldest coal mines;

The resumption of coal mining and export sales from the Blair Athol Coal mine providing the local, state and federal economies with increased economic activity, employment, royalties and taxation; and

Forecast positive cash flow through a low overhead structure and operational efficiencies.

TerraCom plans to commence over 50 hectares of site rehabilitation while bringing the mine back into production. The operation, under TerraCom management, is planned to deliver approximately 2 Mtpa over 7 years and ongoing progressive rehabilitation.
The Broadlea Coal Mine is a small open cut operation that was placed into care and maintenance in 2009 by the previous owners of the asset. Broadlea is located adjacent to, and sharing fixed infrastructure with, the Carborough Downs Coal Mine operation.... More

After further exploration and mine plan optimisation investigations, Fitzroy made the decision to recommence mining in October 2017.
The Byerwen Coal Mine is located 20 kilometres west of Glenden in Queensland's Bowen Basin. The mine has the capacity to produce up to 10 million tonnes of hard coking coal per year. Coal from the Byerwen Mine is railed to Abbot Point Coal Terminal in Mackay for export.... More

Byerwen Coal was granted the mining leases required for the project in May 2017. Construction and mining operations have commenced.

Byerwen Coal is committed to maximising local content outcomes and is working with the Queensland Department of State Development on future supplier events and development programs.
Callide Coal Mine in Central Queensland is an open-cut operation located 120 km southwest of Gladstone and 20 km northeast of the thriving regional township of Biloela. The mine has operated since 1944 producing low sulphur, sub-bituminous thermal coal primarily for domestic power generation and alumina refining.... More

Under the ownership of Batchfire Resources (October 2016) the mine is continuing to meet the quality and performance benchmarks sought by its domestic customers while looking to expand export opportunities.

The Callide mining tenure extends across 180 square kilometres and contains an estimated coal resource of up to 1.7 billion tonnes.

Conventional open cut mining methods are employed using two draglines, haul trucks and excavator fleets. Saleable coal production averages 10 million tonnes per year.

Nearby, two lynchpins of the Queensland electricity supply system – CS Energy’s high-efficiency Callide B and C Power Stations – are the mine’s biggest customer.

In 2017, Batchfire Resources applied to the state government to start the Boundary Hill South project at Callide. With resources at the existing Boundary Hill operation expected to run out in early 2018, Boundary Hill South will become the focus for maintaining a proud tradition of reliable coal supply, local employment and business opportunities.

Callide Coal Mine is committed to safe and environmentally responsible operations and supporting the local communities that it has partnered with for more than 70 years.
Cameby Downs Coal Mine is an open cut operation located in the Surat Basin approximately 360 km northwest of Brisbane in Southeast Queensland, Australia. The mine complex lies on the Warrego Highway approximately 16 km northeast of the township of Miles and 30 km northwest of the Chinchilla township.... More

Cameby Downs produces a low ash export thermal coal and is connected by rail to the Port of Brisbane with port allocation through the Queensland Bulk Handling facility in Brisbane.

The coal deposits are located in the Juandah Coal Measures, which contain a coal seam horizon ranging in thickness up to 20 metres.

The coal deposits are located within Middle Jurassic age coal measures that have been subdivided into the following three formations:

Taroom Coal Measures (lower coal bearing unit)

Tangalooma Sandstone (middle coal bearing unit)

Juandah Coal Measures (upper coal bearing unit)

Following the purchase of Syntech Resources by Yancoal Australia in August 2011, the Cameby Downs Coal Mine and several surrounding and regional tenements are 100% owned by Yancoal Australia's major shareholder, Yanzhou Coal Mining Company. The preparation plant and associated infrastructure was completed during the second half of 2010. The extensive tenement portfolio held by the company in the region has the potential to contain at least a further 1.0 billion tonnes of coal.
Caval Ridge Coal Mine is an open cut mine located approximately 17 km south of Moranbah and 170 km southwest of Mackay in Central Queensland's Bowen Basin. Caval Ridge is owned and operated by BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and mines high quality metallurgical coal from the Permian-aged Moranbah Coal Measures using a combination of dragline ... Moreand truck & excavator mining methods. Current production is on the order of 5.5 Mtpa.
Clermont Coal Mine is a large-scale open cut operation located approximately 12 km from the town of Clermont in Central Queensland's Bowen Basin. Glencore manages operations at Clermont on behalf of a joint venture between Glencore and Sumitomo Corporation (25.05% each), Mitsubishi Development Pty Ltd (31.4%), J-Power Australia Pty Ltd (15%) and J.C.D. ... MoreAustralia Pty Ltd (3.5%).

After commencing operations in 2010, Clermont now produces approximately 12 Mtpa of high energy thermal coal with relatively low ash and sulphur using a truck and shovel method.

The low Run of Mine (ROM) strip ratio (3.2:1) and minimal processing (90% coal does not require washing) combined with the high quality coal, means the mine has a first quartile margin position in the seaborne thermal coal market.

After processing at Clermont, coal is transported by an overland conveyor to the stockpile and rail loading facilities at the nearby Blair Athol Coal Mine. The coal is exported primarily through the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal.
