Summary:

Airly is located within the southern part of the Western Coalfield of NSW, on the western edge of the Sydney Basin. The area is underlain by Triassic sandstone of the Narrabean Group, which is underlain by the Illawarra Coal Measures. The Lithgow Seam within the lower Illawarra Coal Measures, which has an average thickness of 3.4 m, is the target coal seam at Airly Mine. The topology of Airly Mine is dominated by Mount Airly and Genowlan Mountain. The Grose sandstone of the Triassic Narrabeen Group outcrops throughout the plateau and cliffs of Mount Airly and Genowlan Mountain with small areas of Tertiary basalt outcrop at the higher elevations. The Triassic strata are up to 200 m thick. The Permian Illawarra Coal Measures outcrop around the Triassic formations at lower elevations, including the zone between Mount Airly and Genowlan Mountain. The Lithgow Seam, within the lower Illawarra Coal Measures, is the target coal seam at Airly Mine. The seam outcrops completely within the proposed mining area.
