GALILEE COAL PROJECT (NORTHERN EXPORT FACILITY)

 

The “Galilee Coal Project (Northern Export Facility)” consists of two open cut operations and four underground longwall mining operations, coal handling preparation plants and a rail transportation network to Abbot Point and a proposed port facility at Abbot Point. The project intends to mine 56 Mtpa of run-of-mine (ROM) coal, which will be later processed to produce 40 Mtpa of product coal. The project will initially commence operations with a 10 Mtpa open cut mine, eventually ramping up to 56 Mtpa several years later. Key elements of the Galilee Coal Project are:

  • Exploration Permits for Coal 1040 and 1079;
  • Mineral Development License 455;
  • Mining Lease application 70454;
  • JORC Coal Resources of 7.1 Bt;
  • JORC Coal Reserves of 1.1 Bt;
  • Superior thermal coal quality, energy coal ranked at 6350 k/cal (adb), 5800 k/cal (NAR),
  • Mine developments and vertically integrated infrastructure plans for 40 Mtpa product output;
  • State approval of Environmental Impact Statement for “Galilee Coal Project (Northern Export Facility)”, Mine and Rail, 9 August 2013;
  • Commonwealth approval of Environmental Impact Statement for “Galilee Coal Project (Northern Export Facility)”, Mine and Rail, 19 December 2013;
  • Terminal 2 proposal at the port of Abbot Point, proposed by State Government; and
  • Proposed power station proposal known as “Galilee Power”.
