Deposit type

  • Sedimentary

Summary:

The Jellinbah coal deposit is approximately 30 km in length.

Jellinbah Mine falls on the eastern flank of the Comet Ridge of the Bowen Basin, at the north-western end of the Jellinbah Zone. The coal seams at Jellinbah Mine dip to the east.

The coal is at least 10 m deep at its shallowest location and increases as the seam dips by between 2 degrees and 20 degrees.

The major seam of the deposit is the Pollux Seam which is approximately 8 metres thick. The seam dips gently to the east and further down dip splits into the Pollux Upper & Pollux Lower seams.

The initial overburden layers are made up of clays and sands before reaching siltstones and mudstones that are above the coal layers. The overburden material has been classified as non-acid forming.
