General 2015-05-10Fairhill (EPC 2177 / MLA 70496 / MDL 496) is surrounded by a number of well established producing coal mines including Ensham (Idemitsu), Kestrel (Rio Tinto), Oaky Creek (Xstrata), and Gregory Crinum (BMA). Queensland Coal Corporation's Wilton Project adjoins Fairhill to the south. The proximity to established transport infrastructure is excellent. The Blackwater Rail System which connects to coal export terminals in Gladstone passes within 2km of the project. There are two coal targets within EPC 2177, both are confirmed to be present at depths favorable to open cut mining and both are known to exhibit premium hard coking coal properties. The primary target are specific seams of the Fort Cooper Coal measures while a second target is the German Creek Formation which is prospective for low ash hard coking coal.
