Our Glendell Open Cut mine has received a recommendation for approval of its Glendell Continued Operations Project to continue mining to the north of its existing operations.
This recommendation for approval has been referred to the Independent Planning Commission (IPC) for final assessment and determination.
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 extend mining at Glendell Mine to around 2044 on land almost completely owned by Glencore.
Project benefits over the life of the extension
Benefit to Hunter region
Benefit to the State of New South Wales
Royalty revenue for New South Wales Government

Supporting the local economy
Glendell Mine is a major contributor to the local economy, as well as a big supporter of local business. We enjoy seeing companies like Matt Robinson's MJR Excavations grow through their involvement in the mining industry.
