Baralaba Coal Mine Expansion
The Baralaba Coal Mine Expansion initially was developed to expand the existing mine (Baralaba Central) by extending the coal operations area to the north of the Dawson River anabranch.
In September 2013 Cockatoo Coal was successful in the granting of Mining Lease 80169 & 80170 following application to Department of Natural Resources and Mines. This extension is known as the Baralaba North.
Cockatoo Coals is now refocussing efforts to move the Baralaba operations from the approved 1Mtpa to 3.5Mtpa through the pathways necessary for approval to be granted for the Baralaba North Continued Operations Project (BNCOP).
