Glendell Continued Operations Project

Our Glendell Open Cut mine is seeking approval to continue mining to the north of its existing operations.

The Glendell Open Cut mine is part of Glencore Coal’s Mount Owen Complex, off Hebden Road at Ravensworth.

The Glendell Continued Operations Project would provide access to around 135 million tonnes of additional coal resources located on land almost completely owned by Glencore.

Project aspects

Glendell Continued Operations will extend Glendell Mine’s life to 2044 and involve:

  • mining the additional coal resources including ongoing use of overburden emplacement areas, predominantly in-pit
  • using existing infrastructure, including the complex’s coal handling plant and rail loop
  • relocating historic Ravensworth Homestead, realigning the lower section of Yorks Creek and part of Hebden Road.
