KINGOWER COAL PROJECT
North of, Emerald, QLD 4720 Has Kingower Coal Project currently at Exploration, Drilling, Survey & Assessment stage. Previously, vitrinite reflectances were measured for coal samples recovered from the open-hole drilling conducted previously on the Kingower tenement. The Corvus Seam gave a range of values from 0.59 to 0.65, which is indicative of a coal of this rank. Only two samples of the German Creek Seam could be measured and these gave values of 0.63 and 0.99 respectively. The high value recorded from drill hole KG 001 is of interest. It indicates that the German Creek Seam may contain coal of higher rank that was previously interpreted and shows that it is possible that coking coal can be found in this tenement.
