Moorlands Project

Date listed: 13/1/2020

Huaxin Energy (Aust) Pty Ltd is a coal exploration company with a pipeline of Greenfield coal exploration projects in Queensland. Huaxin Energy is targeting first coal production from its flagship Moorlands Project.

The Moorlands Project is an open cut export grade thermal coal development project, located in the Western Bowen Basin in Queensland, about 25km northwest of Clermont and to the immediate west of the Blair Athol and Clermont coal mines. The project is aiming to achieve a 1.9Mtpa mining operation for around 25 years from the proposed South Pit.

The Mining Lease Application (MLA) process is currently underway for the project and the company is pleased with the progress to date. The objection stage in regard to two MLA’s, ML700040 and ML700041 concluded on 26 March 2019, with objections received from concerned parties, predominantly in relation to wildlife protection and fossicking. The objections were referred to the Land Court and Huaxin Energy has entered into a settlement agreement with the relevant objectors to address their concerns. Objections in relation to the other MLA’s have been resolved and compensation with affected landholders is being addressed.

Huaxin Energy will work with relevant stakeholders, wildlife and other experts, native title parties and the local community, to ensure the project is developed in an environmentally sustainable manner and with regard to existing cultural heritage.
