With Blair Athol receiving a two year mine life extension, taking it to up to seven years, TerraCom will capitalise on strong coking coal and thermal coal markets, with plans to start with 50ha of site rehabilitation to bring it back into production.

With  2Mtpa of coking coal expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2017, it is estimated the mine will see 150 direct jobs and another 450 indirect jobs in the region.
