Project Specifics for Maules Creek Coal Handling Processing Plant

Tenements: CL 375 and (A) 346
Location: Maules Creek Coal Project is located in the heart of the Gunnedah Basin and is within close proximity of critical infrastructure. It is approximately 18km north-east of Boggabri and only 16km from the main railway line servicing the coal terminals at the Port of Newcastle, which is 360km south-east of the project.
Coal types: High quality, low ash, low sulphur and low phosphorus semi-soft coking coal
Manager: Maules Creek Coal Joint Venture
Mining Operations: Maules Creek’s current Resources are expected to support a large open cut mining operation for in excess of 30 years at an average saleable coal production rate of approximately 10.8Mtpa. Subject to the timely delivery of all necessary approvals, Aston expects that Maules Creek will be commissioned and first coal production will commence in mid calendar year 2013, with saleable production exceeding 10Mtpa from FY2016 onwards.
Production Statistics: Whitehaven's most recent production statistics can be found in our Quarterly Reports released to the Australian Securities Exchange. You can find the most recent Quarterly Report here.
Remarks: The Maules Creek Project is considered to be one of only a few remaining tier 1 undeveloped coal assets in Australia. It is also one of the largest coal deposits in Australia with 362Mt of recoverable reserves.
