The Alpha North Coal Project is located in the Galilee Basin north of Alpha in Central Queensland, Australia.
The project is an integrated coal project including a coal mine, railway connection to China First Rail and port expansion at Abbot Point.
The project will deliver quality thermal coal to China.
The project has commenced feasibility studies and through a staged development process will deliver first coal production in late 2020.
Exploration to date has confirmed significant mineral resources in four principal coal seams, confirming the presence of a high-quality coal resource in excess of 3.48 billion tonnes.
The Alpha North Coal Project is expected to process 56 Mtpa of raw coal from the mines to produce 40 Mtpa of thermal coal.
JORC Resources Resources 3.480 Billion Tonnes
Mine Infrastructure 40 Mtpa open-cut, underground longwall mining and coal processing
Rail Infrastructure 390km Standard Gauge rail from mine to Abbot Point
Port Infrastructure 40 Mtpa port at Abbot Point proposed Multi Cargo Facility
