GOONYELLA RIVERSIDE BROADMEADOW COAL OPERATIONS EXPANSION
A project in the QLD Within Isaac Regional. The project involves an expansion of the existing Goonyella Riverside open cut and the underground operations at Broadmeadow to increase the capacity from 16 Mt/a to 24 Mt/a. Mining and processing will yield a Hard Coking Coal product for the export market. The open cut expansion and underground expansions will result in an additional 5Mt/a and 3Mt/a of product coal respectively. The surface expansion will use the current open cut mining methods, which involve truck and shovel fleets and draglines exposing coal. Most of the open cut spoil from the expanded operations will be disposed of within mined out pits as is the current practice. However, it is expected that some of the spoil will need to be disposed of in out-of-pit spoil dumps. The existing Broadmeadow Mine, which extracts the Goonyella Middle Seam (GMS), will be expanded eastwards using either the conventional longwall mining practices currently being used for its operations or see the introduction of Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) technology once its feasibility is proven as a means to improve the levels of resource recovery compared to conventional longwall mining methods. A second longwall mine is currently under investigation using either conventional longwall methods or LTCC method. The existing mine has much of the necessary infrastructure in place, however, there are infrastructure upgrades required for the expansion of the mine including: a new CHPP and upgrade to the existing CHPP; construction of an additional 66kV feeder adjacent to the present Goonyella 66kV line; expansion of the existing tailings storage facilities to accommodate increased tailings volumes; improvements to the existing mine water management system, including clean water diversion, disturbed area runoff collection and treatment, pit water management, water reuse and water disposal if there is surplus water at any time that cannot be reused on site. The expansion element of the project requires an additional coal preparation capacity of approximately 2 370 tonnes per hour (t/h) to achieve a production rate of 24 Mt/a. The options to achieve this throughput are to expand the existing CHPP's and/or build a new plant to supplement one or both existing plants. The new CHPP is likely to be tied into the existing product handling system. Alternatively a separate train load-out will be constructed on one of the existing rail loops. The product coal will be railed approximately 190km to the Hay Point and/or Dalrymple Bay coal terminals. Click for more details...

CURRAGH COAL OPERATIONS EXPANSION
Mining (Open Cut) project In The Central Highlands Regional Council Area of Private ownership. The proposal will release approximately 33.6Mt of ROM coal reserves which is within the current Blackwater Creek Corridor. Infrastructure requirements will include a new services corridor of 20m width which will be established to provide for the relocation and installation of infrastructure and utility services. The services corridor will be located on the mine side of the diversion channel, 50m from the diversion batters. Existing 66kV and 22kV electricity distribution lines will require relocation to within this corridor. Additional light vehicle access roads will be established within the Curragh East Mining Lease. The 2.4km relocation and extension to the existing haul road on the mining leas will allow the transfer of ROM coal to the existing CHPP. Progressive rehabilitation works would commence in November 2008 and will run concurrently with the construction works. Blackwater Creek is proposed to be diverted from its current alignment to a newly constructed channel alignment. The diversion channel will be constructed using large earthmoving equipment. The total volume of cut material require to construct the channel is estimate at approximately 16 million bank cubic metres (MBCM) and the total volume of fill would be approximately 0.7 MBCM. The channel will be constructed on a single grade of 0.143% over a length of 10.2km, which is some 800m longer than the existing creek route, eliminating the need for the current drop structure. Approximately 6.1km of levee, including diversion embankments, will be constructed as part of the proposal, with batter 1V to 3H on the water and dry side and with 10m crest width. Diversion embankments will be constructed upstream and downstream to enable the diversion of to be achieved and to prevent the potential inundation of the future working coal pits. The low flow channel will be lined with clay material in some sections of the creek to provide a low permeability layer. The creek diversion will be topsoiled and appropriately vegetated over the total disturbed profile. Click for more details...
