About the Asset

Malabar holds an exploration lease (EL 7429) over a 33 km2 area of land to the west of the the Maxwell Underground Project, known as the Spur Hill Underground Coking Project (Spur Hill Underground).

The Spur Hill Underground Project is a proposed underground mining operation which would be capable of producing approximately 154 Mt of coal at a rate of up to 10 Mtpa for 25 years.

The nearby Maxwell Infrastructure area, which includes a coal preparation plant, train load out, administration area and workshops, will be used to process and rail Spur Hill’s coal. By using the existing infrastructure Malabar will reduce the impact of its operations on the local community, neighbours and the environment.
