ShapshotGlendell Open Cut Mine (Glendell) is part of the Mt. Owen/Glendell Operation. Mining ceased at Glendell mine in Q4 2022.

Glencore has advanced to the next stage approval process for Glendell Continued Operations Project.

The project involves extending the life of the existing operations by establishing a new mining area (the Glendell Pit Extension) to the north of the current Glendell Pit. Development of the Glendell Pit Extension would enable the extraction of an additional 135 million tonnes of run of mine coal over 21 years, at an increased production rate of up to 10 million tonnes per annum.

Progressive rehabilitation will continue in accordance with the most recent Rehabilitation Management Plan and Forward Program.
