TerraCom through its wholly owned subsidiary Orion Mining Pty Ltd has commenced coal production at Blair Athol Athol thermal coal mine in Queensland, Australia.
Initial coal sales will meet product specification as a bypass crushed thermal product.
The coal production has been in conjunction with bulk earthworks required for the rehabilitation of the prior operations towards a final landform as defined in the Environmental Authority.
The dragline overhaul is continuing as planned with the dragline being placed back into operation before the end of the month. Similarly, the recommission of the CHPP continues on plan with a scheduled recommencement mid-October 2017.
With the recommencement of coal mining production at Blair Athol, the mine is on track to deliver first coal sales this month (August 2017).
