Mount Ramsay Coal Company is developing a greenfield, multi-seam, open-cut coal mine using truck and excavator methods to mine up to 5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of run-of-mine coal to produce pulverised coal injection product for at least 20 years, though it is anticipated that with additional drilling and refinement of extraction and production schedules from further technical and financial studies, the final operational life will be between 30-40 years. The mining activity is proposed to occur within an area of approximately 2,214 hectares covered by Mining Lease Application (MLA) 700057.
Product Coal will be transported approximately 40km by road via the existing Baralaba North mine haul route to the Company’s Train Load Out (TLO) Facility east of Moura. Product coal will then be railed to the Port of Gladstone for export to international markets.
