SnapshotFitzroy Australia Resources has restarted its 1 Mtpa Broadlea coking coal mine in Queensland in November 2021.

During the low-price period, Fitzroy had Broadlea in care and maintenance due to economic quarantine caused by Covid-19. The mine is described as a variable producer and is used as a satellite operation for the Carborough Downs level two colliery.

Summary:

Broadlea is located just north of Carborough Downs' underground mine, consisting of a collection of small economic coal deposits.

The project is located on the north-western flank of the Bowen Basin, a sedimentary basin comprising Permian to Triassic age geology. In the vicinity of the project site, the Bowen Basin geology has been folded, forming a broad syncline that plunges and opens to the north. The project site is located on the western limb of the syncline.

Subsequent magmatism has resulted in the formation of localised intrusions of igneous rock within the Bowen Basin sediments. The Bowen Basin sediments are typically overlain by more recent Triassic and Cainozoic age deposits. These deposits (and the upper profile of the Bowen Basin sediments) have been extensively modified by long periods of weathering.

The stratigraphy of the project site and its surrounds includes the following (in descending order):
• Localised alluvium associated with North Creek (not present within the project site);
• Cainozoic sediments, including the Suttor Formation, associated colluvium, weathered sediments, and residual soils;
• Triassic sediments of the Rewan Group;
• Permian coal measures; and
• A localised Cretaceous granitoid intrusion.
