Indicoal Mining Australia Pty Ltd has put forward plans to build and operate an export coal mine in the upper Derwent Valley near Hamilton in Tasmania.
This is good news for Tasmania and mining jobs in Australia’s most southern state.
400,000 tonnes expected in the first year
The mine is expected to have a production capacity of 400,000 tonnes per annum initially. The mining company launched its development proposal and environmental management plan with the state`s Environmental Protection Authority.
The proposed mine is located off the Lyell Highway about 4 kilometres west of Hamilton. Coal crushing operations will be carried out on site. The mine will employ open-cut methods using bulldozers and an excavator truck fleet, creating more mining jobs for qualified machinery operators. Stockpiling and overburden will complete the mining operation.
The mine, which would be named `Langloh`, has an expected lifespan of eight years, with production expectations of 910,000 tonnes per annum after two years.
