MESCA Project Briefing: Webinar

Malabar Coal's General Manager of Development and Operations James Johnson will provide an overview of their Maxwell Underground Project while Tim Webster, Manager - Engineering for Komatsu will discuss the company's involvement with Standards development as well as their COVID-19 response.

About the Maxwell Underground Project

Malabar Coal is seeking to develop the Maxwell Underground Project, an Underground Coking Coal Mine in the Hunter Valley. The Development Application and Environmental Impact Assessment for the project were submitted in August 2019 and are currently being considered by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). 

Detailed planning and engineering for the project are well advanced to ensure construction can commence immediately once the Mining Licence is issued. The operation will target four seams utilising a conventional high productivity Longwall to deliver up to 8 million tonnes per annum. The project involves the recommissioning of the substantial coal handling and train loading infrastructure at the Maxwell Infrastructure site (ex. Drayton) as well as significant construction activities related to establishing access to the underground mine entry area as well as surface to seam construction activities. 

The project will also require the procurement of all underground mining equipment required for a safe and highly productive Longwall mine. Malabar Coal is an independent Australian owned mining company based in the Hunter Valley.
