Summary:

The Mount Pleasant Project is located within the Hunter Coalfield, in the northern section of the Sydney Basin. The Mount Pleasant Project coal resource is located in the Permian Wittingham Coal Measures within the Denman Formation and Jerrys Plains Subgroup and the Archerfield Sandstone and Vane Subgroup. Lithologies comprise mostly sandstones, siltstones and coal seams with minor conglomerates and tuffs. Coal seams amenable to open cut mining occur in eight correlated seams and include the Upper Piercefield (Warkworth) Seam to the lowermost Edderton Seam. The target coal seams vary widely across the extent of the mine, with mineable units generally ranging from approximately 0.6 metres (m) to approximately 10 m in thickness.
