Byerwen Coal Project

The Byerwen Coal Project is located 20 kilometres west of Glenden in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. Once operational the Byerwen Mine will produce up to 10 million tonnes of hard coking coal per year.

Coal from the Byerwen Mine will be railed to Abbot Point Coal Terminal for export.

QCoal Group is currently progressing the remaining mining leases required for the project through the statutory approval process. Early Stage 1 construction activities have commenced, with contractors mobilised on site.
