Summary

Queensland Coal Pty Ltd (QCPL), Nippon Steel Australia Pty Ltd (NPA), Marubeni Coal Pty Ltd (MCPL) and Sumisho Coal Development Pty Ltd (SCD) are undertaking the development of a coal mine in Elphinstone, Queensland, Australia.

The project includes the construction of an office space, a gas drainage system, ventilation infrastructure, access roads, water management infrastructure, pipelines, dams, stockpiles and related infrastructure, and the installation of electrical infrastructure, safety and security systems.

The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has been appointed as a technical consultant, Douglas Partners Pty Ltd as a geo-technical consultant and Resource Strategies Pty Ltd as a planning consultant.
