Mitchells Flat Project

The Mitchells Flat deposit contains mainly Wittingham Coal Measures and is located 12 km east of Singleton. The deposit is owned by Glencore plc. The project was approved as an underground coal mine in 1991 and received a mining lease in 1993. It also has shallower coal resources that are potentially amenable to open-cut development. The inferred and indicated coal resources at Mitchells Flat are estimated to be 160 and 112 Mt, respectively, and total resources stated in the OZMIN database are 520 Mt. These resources can produce steaming coal and soft coking coal (Glencore, 2015).
