Summary:

Geologically the Mandalong Area is located in the south-west of the Newcastle Coalfield, a geological subdivision of the north-eastern Sydney Basin. The coal deposits of this area are contained within sedimentary rocks of the Late Permian Age Newcastle Coal Measures, which are characterised by complex patterns of splitting and coalescence of the various coal seams.

The significant coal seams within the Area are the Wallarah, West Wallarah, Great Northern and Fassifern Seams. The term “West Wallarah Coal Seam” was introduced by Centennial Mandalong and has been used at Mandalong Mine to define the coal seam formed by the westerly convergence of the Wallarah and Great Northern Seams.

Other significant units, which lie within the stratigraphic section, are the Awaba Tuff Formation, which lies between the West Wallarah and Fassifern Seams, and the Munmorah Conglomerate, which sits within the Triassic Age Narrabeen Group sediments between 80 m to 110 m above the West Wallarah Seam and Wallarah-Great Northern Seams. This conglomerate beam has a significant impact on the subsidence profile for the Mandalong Mine due to its spanning potential.
