Summary:

The coal resource at the Duralie Coal Mine (DCM) is located within the Permian aged Gloucester Basin in NSW. The DCM is located in the southern closure of the main synclinal structure of the Gloucester Basin and is associated with the coal bearing strata of the Dewrang Group. The Dewrang Group comprises three main stratigraphic units, namely: Mammy Johnsons Formation; Weismantels Formation; and Duralie Road Formation. The coal seams mined at the DCM include: • the Weismantel Seams; • the Clareval Seams; and • the Cheerup Seams. The underlying basement rocks are principally volcanics of Early Permian (i.e. Alum Mountain Volcanics) and Carboniferous age that were folded during formation of the Gloucester Basin. The Early Permian and Carboniferous volcanic rocks are typically erosion resistant and form the more prominent ridges to the east and west of the DCM.
