The Alpha Coal West Project is a thermal coal deposit is located immediately to the west of the Alpha Coal Project .
Exploration of the Alpha West coal deposit has delineated a JORC (Joint Ore Reserves Committee, 2004) compliant resource of 1.8 Bt (Indicated and Inferred).
Mining of the Alpha West thermal coal deposit is expected to by underground longwall mining. Potential mining operations could accommodate 2 to 3 concurrent longwall operations.
The Alpha West thermal Coal Project mine will utilise the rail and port infrastructure established for the preceding Alpha Coal and Kevin’s Corner mine developments as well as sharing elements of the site-based infrastructure such as roads, airports, and water and power supply lines.
A concept study has been completed for this Project.
